Educator effectiveness

A new movement affecting public schools and many vendors that supply them is the radical rethinking of teacher evaluations.   It’s a complex issue with both educational and political ramifications that go way beyond just issuing teachers “report cards” to quote some media references.  Renaissance Learning has just published a policy brief I authored for them, entitled “Using Short-Cycle Interim Assessment to Improve Educator Evaluation, Educator Effectiveness, and Student Achievement.”  This paper treats a narrow, though important, aspect of this issue.  I’ll be posting some additional thoughts on the subject in the next few days but I hope this piece can start some thinking and dialog now.
