TEI defines and evaluates excellence through three lenses: performance, student achievement and student experience surveys that encourage and reward excellence in the classroom and beyond.

These three components, performance, student achievement and student perception surveys, are aligned with the Measures of Effective Teaching project and other research. The weights given to the evaluation components in TEI were decided with much input from Dallas ISD teachers and principals. The evaluation is based on a 100-point scale. Learn More About Defining Excellence.
