EVAAS data from the 2013-14 school year was slated to be released in October of this year.  However, due to verification issues regarding NC Final Exams, the data release was postponed.  It is important to note that teachers who taught courses where NC Final Exams were used as their effectiveness measure should know that NC Final Exams growth has not yet been verified as reliable.  However, EOGs and EOCs in grades 3-12 and mClass data used in K-2 have been tested for validity and reliability and approved.  More information will be forthcoming regarding the validity of NC Final Exam data.
