Evaluating educator effectiveness has become a major concern across the nation. The fundamental premise underlying this concern is that good teaching and effective educational management carried out in a supportive learning environment ought to produce enhanced learning. The linking of educator evaluation to student learning has changed the nature of educator evaluation in significant ways. For the past few years, ATI has been working closely with Local Education Agencies to meet the challenges of evaluating educator effectiveness. As a result of this work, ATI has developed a Comprehensive Instructional Effectiveness Assessment System.
