    Teacher accountability research powerpoint Teacher accountability research powerpoint Presentation Transcript

    • Teacher Accountability
      How do they measure up?
      Your child is assigned to one of the following…
      The Great Teacher
      The Average Teacher
      The Poor Teacher who needs another career
      How do you know? How will your child fair?
    • Houston WE have a PROBLEM!
      The current components of teacher accountability systems need to be revised to adequately reflect the result of proper techniques and student improvement.

    • Current Issues with Teacher Accountability Components
      “teachers do not have control over all the variables that lead to successful student performance on external tests”
      “a large scale test is too blunt to determine how well an individual students is learning”
      www.nctm.org/resources/content.aspx?id=7814
    • “Teachers need professional development in order to develop the understanding that leads to commitment. Through teacher commitment the classroom realities change for our students.”
      Current Issues with Teacher Accountability Components
      www.nctm.org/resources/content.aspx?id=7814
    • “We need teacher accountability…the kind that builds capacity not creates fear…accountable for grounding professional practices in best available research…providing students with engaging and relevant lessons…”
      Current Issues with Teacher Accountability Components
      www.nctm.org/resources/content.aspx?id=7814
    • “High resolution accountability …emphasizes information feedback and continuous improvement…takes time, leadership, attention to details of practice and a culture of reflective practice.”
      Current Issues with Teacher Accountability Components
      www.nctm.org/resources/content.aspx?id=7814
    • The National Commission on Teaching and America’s Future believes “peer assistance and review systems are successful, gauge teacher competence with more useful measures and emphasize assistance and professional growth rather than punishment.”
      Current Issues with Teacher Accountability Components
      www2.ed.gov/pubs/PromPractice/chapter7.html
    • “Today teacher accountability has come to mean how well a teacher’s students perform on standardized tests.”
      “Our standardized tests…are nowhere near sophisticated enough…to be used as a real measure of performance.”
      Current Issues with Teacher Accountability Components

    • Education historian, Diane Ravitch studies of teacher effectiveness wrote, the scores “reflected something other than what the teachers did…”
      “Test scores do not make an evaluation system.”
      Current Issues with Teacher Accountability Components

    • Research Purpose
      The goal of this research is to evaluate current teacher accountability systems to highlight their deficiency as well as offer possible components for an efficient system.

    • Significance of Research
      Trends in preparedness of students for higher-level education or college show that our students are being adequately prepared. Even what is considered to be the standard of determining teacher effectiveness is not seeming to meet the rigor to reflect success on college-entrance exams or in college. If we plan to produce students who can be ultimately contributing citizens, the testing that hold teacher accountable should directly reflect their preparedness and the effectiveness of our teachers.
    • Significance of Research
      Whether for one of these or some other reason, “accountability” is now a major issue. It’s widely believed that if America doesn’t shape up, scientists and engineers from beyond our borders will soon be eating our technological lunch.
