The evaluation portion of the NMTEACH Educator Effectiveness System is comprised of 3 categories: Observations, locally adopted Multiple Measures and Improved Student Achievement

Teacher Observations
are formally scored 2 to 3 times per school year. Observers are school leaders trained and certified in the NMTEACH Observation Protocol. Guided by a rubric that describes teacher effectiveness at varying levels, observers have an objective set of criteria to evaluate teachers. Feedback is provided by the observer, and the teacher and observer work together to improve instruction if necessary.
Multiple Measures
Multiple Measures are a combination of scored professional activities—as described in the NMTEACH Educator Effectiveness Observation Rubric—and locally chosen criteria that capture a teacher's professionalism. Locally chosen measures include teacher attendance, student surveys, and parent surveys.
Improved Student Achievement
indicates a teacher's impact on the growth of individual students. Because not all students come to the classroom at grade level readiness, student achievement is scored using a Value Added Model (VAM). VAM measures individual teacher contribution to student achievement by comparing the expected growth of the individual student against the actual individual student growth while in the teachers' classroom.

The NMTEACH Educator Effectiveness system was developed with direct input and guidance from the New Mexico Effective Teaching Task Force, the NMTEACH advisory committee, and the input of legislators, union leaders, parents and teachers. Using extensive research regarding student achievement, teacher effectiveness and teacher evaluation, the stakeholders recommended the 3-area approach adopted by NMTEACH.
