BUFFALO, New York — The results of New York state's mandatory teacher evaluations are in.

Data released by the Education Department Thursday shows that 94 percent of teachers earned a rating of effective or highly effective for the 2012-13 school year.

The results give 5 percent a rating of "developing," while 1 percent of teachers were labeled ineffective.

The data doesn't contain teacher names and excludes New York City teachers because evaluations didn't start there until the following year.

The data expands on preliminary results released in October. It enables those interested to look up the effectiveness of teachers and principals in specific districts or schools. Parents can get their child's teacher's rating from the district.

State law requires that scores be based on a combination of measures, including growth on standardized tests.
