The Teacher Evaluation Advisory Committee was created during the special session as part of the Tennessee First to the Top Act to help create a new, annual, teacher and principal evaluation framework.


Fifty percent of the new evaluation must consist of student achievement data, of which 35 percent will be Tennessee Value Added Assessment System (TVAAS) data or some other comparable measure of student growth. The remaining 15 percent will be other measures of student achievement as developed by the committee and adopted by the state board of education.
