Administrator Evaluation



Administrator evaluation combines self-reflection, observation, input of school staff, and student data to create a complete picture of an administrator’s performance.

  • The effectiveness rating is calculated using a formula that is 50 percent qualitative and 50 percent quantitative.
  • The 50 percent quantitative portion includes a 35 percent growth measure (one-year school-wide TVAAS) and a 15 percent achievement measure.

The Administrator Rubric is based on the Tennessee Instructional Leadership Standards (TILS). These were updated by the State Board of Education in July 2018, and are located in policy 5.106.

Surveys are a required component of the administrator evaluation process; however, evaluators may utilize an instrument of choice. One option, the Teacher Perception Survey, is aligned to the TILS. This survey is designed for educators to provide anonymous, timely, relevant, and thoughtful feedback to instructional leaders and district personnel.
