Performance, Value, and Accountability: Public Policy Goals and Legal Implications of the Use of Performance Assessments in the Preparation and Licensing of Educators

This resource addresses legal issues in the use of educator performance assessments as evidence for initial state licensure and for program approval and accountability in educator preparation programs. It describes individual, institutional, and governmental interests in the use of performance assessments and discusses associated legal issues. It considers traditional types of legal claims and also anticipates new types of potential legal challenges.

Throughout the paper, practitioners are offered checklists of considerations for creating and implementing policies arising from the legal issues discussed.”
