      NM teachers to receive corrected evaluations

      State officials say hundreds of New Mexico teachers who received evaluations with errors will get corrected evaluations within weeks.

      State officials say hundreds of New Mexico teachers who received evaluations with errors will get corrected evaluations within weeks.

      Spokesman Larry Bahrens says the Public Education Department plans to release corrected evaluations for the past school year by end of August.

      Education Secretary Hanna Skandera says the mistakes were caused by faulty data reported by districts.

      The Albuquerque Journal ( http://bit.ly/1sTC2Uc ) reports that the districts submitted new data, and the state is rechecking the evaluations.

      The evaluations are based on student standardized test scores, principal observations and factors such as teacher attendance or student surveys.
