Huffman: Department Preparing Evaluation Report

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee Education Commissioner Kevin Huffman said recommendations his department plans to make about the state's new teacher evaluation system will be similar to those suggested by a group the governor commissioned to review the process.

Huffman spoke to reporters on Thursday before speaking at a summit for elementary school teachers.

Earlier this week, the State Collaborative on Reforming Education, or SCORE, released its study, which addressed educators' concerns about student testing data.

The report said about two-thirds of the state's teachers should be allowed to opt for a smaller portion of their evaluations to be based on such data.

Huffman didn't discuss specifics, but he said his report will also deal with value-added testing data. The report is due to lawmakers next month.
