China to Include Teachers' Online Work in Performance Review

The work of Chinese teachers during the country's battle to contain the novel coronavirus outbreak, including online teaching and tutoring, will be included in teachers' performance assessment by schools, according to the Ministry of Education.

Online teaching and tutoring, as well as the correction of students' homework, will be counted as part of teachers' workloads, the ministry said in a circular.

Education authorities and schools are urged to organize online teaching based on the conditions of local online education platforms and schools, according to the ministry.

Teachers who have made outstanding contributions to the country's virus battle should be honored, the circular said.
