INFORMATION
Training Overview

Where does bias creep into teacher evaluations? Discover how to eliminate inequitable assessments.

Evaluations for teachers in K-12 schools can be skewed by bias. These assessments often include subjective ratings, inconsistent processes, and unclear or inappropriate criteria.

Even among evaluators who mean well and attempt to ensure equitable staff assessments, unconscious bias can easily creep into their interpretations of teachers’ performance..

You need to carefully examine your evaluation process, identify areas of concern, and alleviate bias in its many forms.
