On Thursday, August 25, TDE launched the new TEAM website. At this site, you can find links to a wealth of resources related to the new evaluation system. Many of these resources will be of value to all districts, whether using the state TEAM model or another approved model for teacher evaluations this year.
For those using the TEAM model, links to the educator rubric, alternative rubrics for educators in alternative schools and library media specialists, as well as observation forms and the professionalism rating report can be found at this site.
Of interest to all districts, a report and chart on alternative growth measures for non-tested subjects and grades is posted, as well as information and worksheets relative to choosing and calculating the 15 percent student achievement measure.
The website provides principal evaluation information and forms, as well as information about additional training opportunities this fall for observers to be trained in the TEAM model.
And that's not all. Additional forms and questions and answers will be posted here as they are developed. This is clearly a website to bookmark and check into often to stay up-to-date on the latest developments with Tennessee's evolving teacher evaluation system.
