Report cover

In this Ask the Team brief, take a look at how districts are using peer observers and peer assistance and review (PAR) programs as part of teacher evaluation. Through a series of suggested strategies and examples, you can use this brief to:

  • Consider the trade-offs: is peer observation right for your context?
  • Decide on roles: what kind of peer observers will work best? • Select and prepare: who should be a peer observer?
  • Align existing programs: what to do if you already have a peer assistance and review program.
