Using Classroom Portfolios to Evaluate Arts Educators (Register Here)
At a time when pressure is mounting on teachers to demonstrate their contribution to student learning, Tennessee is ramping up participation in an alternative component to its teacher-evaluation system for the arts that provides an unusual approach. It tackles the thorny issue of what to do when standardized test scores are not available. The answer in Tennessee is portfolios of classroom work assembled by teachers, and then peer-reviewed by other arts educators. Teachers collect student work, and not just the final, polished products, but rather the before and after, showing student improvement over time. Experts say the initiative could serve as a model for other states, as well as teachers in other disciplines. In fact, Tennessee is now piloting a similar program for foreign-language educators.
