Teacher Evaluation

The Teacher Development and Evaluation System is a multiple-measure system that allows for a holistic assessment of a teacher's contribution to the progress students make. Measures of student learning are combined with measures of teacher practice (observations made by evaluators) to create an overall rating.

See the UFT evaluation guide

The matrix

The matrix used to calculate your final rating for the 2020-21 year will remain the same as in previous years. You will receive a H, E, D or I rating for both your Measures of Teacher Practice (MOTP) and Measures of Student Learning (MOSL) subcomponents. The matrix, which is shown below, makes it easy to determine your final rating. Just find the square where your MOSL rating and your MOTP rating intersect and that’s your rating.
