The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation introduced the Measures of Effective Teaching (MET) project to develop and test multiple measures of teacher effectiveness. This document explores the overarching purpose and functionality of a validation engine, which was designed to help districts determine if their observation protocols routinely assign the highest ratings to teachers whose students grew the most, in terms of academic performance, and the lowest ratings to teachers whose students grew the least.
In considering the current state of our education and workforce systems, I see trends in both that are causing understandable concern among students, families, workers, and many other stakeholders. But I remain optimistic that our collective efforts will help support communities toward a vision where race, gender, and socioeconomic status are no longer predictors of academic or economic success.
