The TN Student Growth Portfolio asks most teachers to complete four evidence collections that involve uploading authentic work products for a differentiated sample of students in two points in time (Point A and Point B).
Once submitted, the evidence collections are sent to peer reviewers who also score the work. The scoring follows a Consensus Scoring process. In the event that there is a discrepancy between the teacher’s self score and the peer review score, the submission is sent to an expert reviewer for final review. The expert reviewer’s scores will stand as the final scores for the submission.
The peer review scores (unless scored by an expert reviewer) are then used to calculate student growth scores for each evidence collection that are then leveled according to a Teacher Effectiveness rating scale. Both the growth scores for the evidence collections and the final Teacher Effectiveness rating will be shared with teachers in an online Score Report once peer review has been completed.
