Tennessee State Board of EducationNashville, TN – The Tennessee Department of Education released a new report today that explores the use and expansion of student growth portfolio models, which are an alternative form of educator evaluation that measures student growth. The report summarizes findings from analyses of the scores, the impact of portfolios on teacher practice, and its influence on teachers’ perceptions of evaluation.

Generally, the report finds that portfolio scores are well-aligned to other evaluation scores and suggests that portfolios strengthen the department’s work to create a more accurate, personalized evaluation system for all teachers.

Around 50 percent of teachers who used a portfolio received a higher growth score than they would have if they had used a schoolwide growth measure instead.
