Strategic Measures of Teacher Performance

Managing the human capital in education requires measuring teacher performance. To measure performance, administrators need to combine measures of practice with measures of outcomes, such as value-added measures, and three measurement systems are needed: classroom observations, performance assessments or work samples, and classroom walkthroughs. However, these methods should not be combined haphazardly because different measures are appropriate for different functions.
