Following a 100-0 vote on Monday, schools across Indiana would no longer be required to use student standardized test scores in teacher evaluations under a bill that was approved by the Indiana House.
This bill would repeal a state mandate dating from a 2011 Republican-driven education overhaul that school districts incorporate those student exam results in their teacher evaluations, which are used in determining merit pay raises.
Democrats supported the change while arguing the requirement should never have been adopted and felt that test scores were a "false promise" of sorts basing a single examine when measuring the quality of teachers.
The bill now goes to the Senate for consideration.
