Thank you justateacher. So nice to get a teacher's perspective. Great points. Thanks for stopping by and keep hubbing!
Thanks Lady E for your input. Keep hubbing.
Thanks for the insight Seek-n-Find. So who are the field tests performed on? Thanks for stopping by and keep hubbing!
The field tests are performed on all of the students. They sneak them into the real tests that students take but they do not count for the students' score. This way they get accurate data. It is the items that are being tested in that case.
Good points! I agree that assessments are more difficult to use for the various learning styles. I know the assessments I work on are moving that direction , though. Assessments should be "a" tool--not the only tool used for measuring students!
How do you feel about test results being a measure of the quality of a teacher?
Hm.That's tricky.Again, I think they could be a tool but should not carry too much weight. I think they are helpful indicators but should not be decision-makers. There should be formal and informal measurements for teachers, just like for students.
I agree that test scores should not carry much weight. If compared with the previous years' test results for those same children, one can draw conclusions as to how effective the teacher was for the current year. But that's not always accurate.
