teacher evaluation nctq on teacher prep for assessments
NCTQ ON TEACHER PREP FOR ASSESSMENTS: An in-depth report from the National Center on Teaching Quality “examining the extent to which teacher preparation programs train teachers to understand assessment data and use that data to make informed instructional adjustments.” Heavy stuff here. It appears that many teacher preparation programs are providing minimal instruction on coping with assessment data.
Recommendations include changes in federal policy for funding assessment research and more accountability in the teacher prep programs that take place at the local and state levels. But there’s no need to depend only on talking heads or wait for the ink to dry. Join EdSurge tomorrow for our second #esinstruct chat on assessments.
