Education Week: Take the Time to Evaluate Teacher Evaluations

The efficacy of using student test scores as a significant component of teacher evaluations is a polarizing topic, often debated by those focused on “reform at all costs” and those who want any type of reform to be measured, valuable, and valid.  This commentary/article from Education Week takes the position that the idea of using student test scores as a overwhelming determinant in teacher evaluations, something which continues to be pushed for here in Delaware, is short-sighted and lacking in scientific validity.  The commentary/article was written by Tia Sukin, W. Alan Nicewander, Phoebe Winter, Howard Mitzel, Lisa Keller, and Matt Schulz, all respected psychometricians who have authored studies and articles in many peer-reviewed journals.
