NYC’s New Teacher Evaluation System Includes Student Surveys

Starting next school year, NYC students will begin weighing in on teacher performance. As part of the city’s new teacher evaluation system, students in grades 3-12 will fill out surveys to give firsthand assessments on their learning experiences with teachers.

According to the New York World:

While during the first year of the new teacher evaluation system the results of these surveys will not be included in the teacher evaluation formula, next year teachers’ marks on these surveys will account for five of the 60 percent of teacher evaluation scores not determined by student performance on state tests.

With more than 700,000 students enrolled in city public schools in those grades, the year-one survey contract will cost about $8 a student.
