The McREL Teacher Evaluation System captures the most current research in educator effectiveness. The validated rubric driven instrument exemplifies a formative process that is designed to facilitate growth in professional educator performance. The formative process is driven by transparency and collegiality that roll up to form a summary evaluation of educator performance and assists in the generation of professional development plans.

The goal is to make a difference in the quality of education and learning for all through excellence in applied research, product development and service. The evaluator with the participation of the teacher will conduct the evaluation process through the use of teacher self-assessment, reflection, presentation of artifacts, and classroom demonstrations.
