A group of Los Angeles teachers Wednesday unveiled their own proposal for a new performance review system that would use both state standardized test scores and assessments chosen by individual schools to measure how well instructors help their students learn.

The proposal by Educators 4 Excellence, whose L.A. chapter of 900 teachers was launched last November, came one day after a Los Angeles Superior Court judge found that the Los Angeles Unified School District had violated a state law requiring the use of such student achievement measures in its instructor evaluations. It is the latest in a flurry of recent proposals by L.A. teacher and community groups to endorse the use of student test scores in job-performance reviews.
