Listening to Marzano speak on teacher evaluation at our state department conference.
Started off with lots of statistics that bring up some interesting conversation about the reliability of education measurements. Seems that a teacher quiz has similar reliability to sub-scores on standardized tests.
Can you reward status and growth at the teacher level? An interesting question for our table to discuss and one with no quick consensus. How to measure defines part of the problem?
Thinking about looking at a teacher over their career, does effective in year two of one's career look the same as effective in year 12? Missouri is considering a model that takes this into account. Large scale piloting is to take place this year.
I don't know what the answer to teacher evaluation is but do know what we currently do is not effective.
