The TN Student Growth Portfolio is a model for measuring student growth that is part of the state’s comprehensive evaluation system for teachers based on multiple measures of effectiveness, including student growth indicators. Districts have facilitators and administrators who are in a position to provide support to teachers in planning and collecting student work. Whether assuming one or more of these roles, you play a vital part in supporting teachers through this critical process.
