I was critical of last month’s Gate Foundation report on supporting the value-added approach towards teacher evaluation, and I wasn’t the only one.
Now, today, well-regarded professor and economist Jess Rothstein has come-out with a thorough, and critical, analysis of that same report.
In addition to reviewing his report (or instead of), you could read summaries of it here:
Premises, Presentation And Predetermination In The Gates MET Study at the Shanker Blog.
New analysis challenges Gates study on value-added measures by Valerie Strauss at The Washington Post.
How About a Measures of Effective Reporting Project? by Sabrina Stevens Shupe at The Huffington Post.
I’m adding all these links to The Best Resources For Learning About The “Value-Added” Approach Towards Teacher Evaluation.
