Wrong way to judge teachers




Wednesday, Nov. 07, 2012 | 12:00 AModified Tue, Nov 06, 2012 04:24 PM

If the Fresno and Central Unified Race To The Top applications are accepted, their teachers will be subject to a significant miscarriage of justice. When you attempt to evaluate teachers on student test scores, something is terribly awry. These tests are not designed to judge teachers, so they fail the most important criteria for validity. At least 85% of test score variability is due to factors outside of the classroom, experiences with which the teacher has no control.

Teachers would be judged on such things as students' family ethnicity, income, language and parent education. Also, the essay-writing a student may learn through his history teacher might be credited to his English teacher. The math he learns in his math class perhaps should be credited to his physics teacher.

The RAND Corporation concluded that the research base is insufficient to support the use of test scores for high-stakes decisions about individual teachers or schools. Our own National Research Council, Board on Testing and Assessment has spoken out against judging teachers on test scores.

The most highly respected education systems in the world like Finland and Singapore do not use test scores in evaluating their teachers. So, why do we persist?

    First off I want to say terrific blog! I had a quick question which I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing. I've
    had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there.
    I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost
    simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or
    tips? Kudos!

    Hi! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering
    which blog platform are you using for this website?

    I'm getting tired of Wordpress because I've had issues with hackers
    and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
