Document Number: 10465Recent Teacher Policy Changes in Tennessee: Teacher Evaluations - The Tennessee First to the Top Act of 2010 created a new teacher evaluation system in Tennessee. Some components of the new evaluation system (the Tennessee Educator Acceleration Model or TEAM) are still under development, but TEAM has been implemented as part of Tennessee’s agreement for receipt of federal grant funds. This report analyzes the former teacher evaluation model (Framework for Evaluation and Professional Growth) and TEAM, and compares the two systems.
