The Gates Foundation is set to release the final report of its three-year project on teacher effectiveness on Tuesday.
You can read about the concerns that I, and many others, had about it’s mid-term report a year ago at The Best Posts On The Gates’ Funded Measures Of Effective Teaching Report.
You can find additional concerns specifically about its perspective on using student surveys in a formal teacher evaluation process at
The Best Posts On Students Evaluating Classes (And Teachers) (look near the end of that post).
And The National Education Writers Association published a decent introductory piece on it today.
I’m sure I’ll be posting more about the report once it comes out…
