Reviews and measurements of the effectiveness of teachers
Overview

Reviews and measurements of the effectiveness of teachers. What should constitute the standard for such assessments has become a contentious topic. Certain states have "graded" and publicized teacher performance based on how their students score on standardized tests (also called "value-added rating). On the other hand, the Gates Foundation has spearheaded a "Measures of Effective Teaching (MET)" project that examines teaching based on classroom observations from credentialed experts.
