The purpose of this study was to analyze this system of a evaluating and remediating classroom teachers in Illinois. The old system of evaluating teachers has been the source of much criticism and was changed by the Illinois legislature in 2011 with the passage of the performance of evaluation reform act and Senate Bill seven. The study was qualitative in nature and included interviews of 11 administrators with significant experience evaluating classroom teachers. This study explored the weaknesses of the old system and attempted to highlight the ways in which the new system sought to improve the weaknesses of the old system. Finally, the study made some recommendations for practicing superintendents and principles in Illinois.
