A few Quad City schools are testing out a new way to evaluate teachers.
    
Sterling, Morrison, and Carbon Cliff-Barstow will base teacher evaluations on how students perform on a test. For now, the evaluations are a pilot program and won't count against the teachers. But next year, all Illinois schools will adopt this plan, and this new method could affect a teacher's tenure.
    
Some school officials think basing a teacher's performance off of one test is not accurate.

"I think if the state wants a depiction of what is actually going on is a classroom or how students performing, it needs to be two or three times a year," said Tim Green, Eagle Ridge School principal.

State officials say the test is designed to fairly evaluate each teacher no matter a teacher's seniority and provide feedback.
