Measuring teachers’ effects on K-12 learning.
Accreditation and program approval requirements nationwide require the assessment of teachers’ knowledge, skills, and dispositions, as defined in national and state standards of the profession. They continue to require that the result of teachers’ instruction on children’s learning be assessed, as well, so that all children learn. It is this bottom line result that is the focus of this paper, which explores implementation strategies for measuring the impact or effect on student learning that teachers have. Stated in simpler terms, this article discusses measures of teacher effectiveness that track systematically K-12 student progress as part of a larger assessment system that looks at all four elements – knowledge, skills, dispositions, and impact.
