7 Things the Most Successful Leaders Give Away Every Day | Common Core | Scoop.it
Just because someone sits in a leadership position doesn't mean he or she will be any good at inspiring others to do good work. It all depends on what a leader is willing to give.

School test results in soon; they won't be pretty

School test results in soon; they won't be pretty | Common Core | Scoop.it
Parents of public school children will soon be peeling back envelopes hiding test scores. A warning: they may defy expectations if you’re planning to see great improvement in your kids. Students took new, more rigorous computer-based tests this spring. The results coming in the mail will be the first ones kids actually see since the changes were made; earlier ones were just for practice.

The Art of Reporting Common-Core Test Results

The Art of Reporting Common-Core Test Results | Common Core | Scoop.it
New York and Kentucky, which gave common-core tests before other states did—and navigated the public reaction—share their experiences as dozens of other states get ready to do the same.


Even without the alignment issue, there's the trendline issue: most states gave new tests this year, so that makes year-to-year comparisons impossible. Unavoidably, people will want to make year-to-year comparisons. They'll yearn to make year-to-year comparisons. And while those comparisons might tell you something about the relative rigor of each test, they won't tell you much about students' progress over time.

Common Core offers promising alternative to letter grades | Common Core | Scoop.it

As we adapt to the Common Core, our traditional grading system of A-F is on the chopping block, and rightfully so. This system, grading on a curve, has tended to perpetuate the status quo.

The Management Thinker We Should Never Have Forgotten

The Management Thinker We Should Never Have Forgotten | Common Core | Scoop.it

W. Edwards Deming believed that we can improve worker performance only when we improve the entire system they work within. And he believed that managers wrongly apply incentive pay plans, forced rankings, and all sorts of carrots and sticks to create the illusionof control without solving root performance problems.
