Classroom Observations and the MET Project — Summary
A teacher has more impact on student learning than any other factor controlled by school systems, but currently, there is no agreement among education stakeholders as to how to identify and measure effective teaching. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation launched the Measures of Effective Teaching (MET) project to develop and test multiple measures of teacher effectiveness. This summary highlights the Classroom Observations component of the study.
This ongoing series of publications by MET project partners can help states, districts, and technical assistance providers in building and improving a classroom observation system that supports better teaching and student learning.
Statement from Allan Golston, President U.S. Program, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation on the release of the results of the Intensive Partnerships for Effective Teaching study of teacher evaluation.
To realize their full potential, students need access to excellent teachers. And excellent teachers need meaningful feedback to help them grow in their practice. In this way, giving teachers feedback and support ultimately benefits students and drives student success.
