The state of Oregon, like many states, requires its districts’ teacher evaluation systems to include measures of student learning as well as a measure of teachers’ professional practice. State guidelines require use of state test data in assessed grades as one of the measures, but allow districts flexibility in which additional assessments to use and which source of information to prioritize when evaluating teachers. This study used existing data from one school district to compare students’ performance on a state reading and literature assessment to their performance on reading curriculum-based measures, and the degree to which measures of teaching practices relates to both types of student outcomes. Results are interpreted with consideration of how the district implements their measure of teaching practice. Results from this study may help inform decisions the district will face as they continue to refine their teacher evaluation system in accordance with state guidelines, while elucidating challenges that such systems pose.
