Gathering Feedback on Teaching: Combining High Quality Observations with Student Surveys and Achievement Gains — Report
This report examines the value of five different approaches to classroom observations, focusing on how well they evaluate teaching quality in coordination with student achievement data. The aim is to provide a more realistic and nuanced approach to the evaluation of teaching quality using a combination of measures.
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.
From 2007 to 2014, Cambridge Education implemented Tripod surveys through its partnership with Dr. Ronald F. Ferguson of Harvard University. Dr. Ferguson and Rob Ramsdell were the professional leads for the survey portion of the MET project and Cambridge Education managed all data collection related to the Tripod survey.
