Teachers for the 21st Centur Using Evaluation to improve Teaching

Tania Grosz's insight:

"In some countries the concept – not to mention the use – of teacher appraisal sparks discussion just about wherever and 

whenever it is mentioned. according to what criteria? Who decides? and what should the results of teacher appraisals be
used for? however, education stakeholders are beginning to find some agreement in the idea that teacher appraisal can be
a key lever for increasing the focus on teaching quality and continuous professional development for teachers, in keeping
with the growing recognition that the quality of teaching affects student learning outcomes."

The Widget Effect

Tania Grosz's insight:

"... The established arguments, however, fail to recognize 

that the challenge of addressing performance in the
teaching profession goes far beyond the issue of dismissal.
In fact, as this report illustrates, school districts fail to
acknowledge or act on differences in teacher performance
almost entirely. When it comes to officially appraising
performance and supporting improvement, a culture
of indifference about the quality of instruction in each
classroom dominates."
