More than 90 percent of teachers who piloted Colorado’s new evaluation system last year were rated proficient or higher.

But the 2,000 teachers in the pilot program gave the rating system mixed reviews. All of the state’s educators will undergo the new evaluations starting this year.

Katy Anthes is in charge of teacher effectiveness at the Colorado Department of Education. She talked about the results from the pilot with CPR education reporter Jenny Brundin.
