The Reliability of Classroom Observations by School Personnel
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation introduced the Measures of Effective Teaching (MET) project to develop and test multiple measures of teacher effectiveness. This report offers an in-depth discussion of the technical methods, results, and implications of the MET project’s research around video-based classroom observations by school personnel.
A new book, Better Feedback for Better Teaching, offers practical guidance for improving observer training, assessment, and monitoring so all educators can benefit from trustworthy observations that provide them with meaningful, accurate, and actionable feedback.
