teacher portfolio assessments

Posted By: Jeremy Ayers on June 9, 2004
 
Amy,

As far as I know, the field agrees that Connecticut has one of, if not the best performance-based licensing (PBL) system that includes teacher portfolio assessments. Our organization has put together a report on new teacher induction, in which we feature Connecticut as a case study. Central to that case study is the new teacher portfolio. You will find Katie Fisk Natale, at the Bureau of Educator Assessment, in the CT Dept. of Ed. a great contact -- very knowledgeable from many angles. Katie has been there for over 12 years, and she has lots of data, and I know they have several studies on their program.

I also hear that North Carolina has a solid PBL system, but I am not familiar with their program.

Hope this is helpful.

If your project is a large one, I would enjoy hearing more about it and how the process goes. The Alliance is interested in understanding and tracking developments in states around new teachers and performance assessments.
