Ensuring Fair and Reliable Measures of Effective Teaching: Culminating Findings from the MET Project’s Three Year Study
With the support of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Measures of Effective Teaching (MET) project was created to develop and test multiple measures of teacher effectiveness. This a non-technical research brief designed for policymakers and practitioners that summarizes recent analyses from the MET project. The brief addresses identifying effective teaching while accounting for differences among students, combining measures into composites, and assuring reliable classroom observations.
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.
