Do your evaluations make you a better Career and Technical Education Teacher?Calling all CTE teachers! Here are some questions to consider:

  • Are your performance evaluations conducted by an expert in your field?
  • Do you receive great teaching ideas and support from your evaluator as part of your performance feedback?
  • Are meaningful and relevant student growth and outcome measures incorporated into your evaluations?
  • Are you a better CTE teacher because of your evaluations?

In this special report for Techniques, GTL staff member, Catherine Jacques offers a detailed overview of how evaluation systems can be developed to address CTE teacher’s specific needs. The report details how standard evaluation measures, such as practice and student growth measures, can be adapted to ensure they reflect CTE teacher contexts and produce fair, accurate results.  CTE teachers can use this information to work with district and school leaders to create evaluation systems that better fit CTE teacher contexts.
