More “disapproval of test scores as a metric of teacher performance”

Survey Shows Indiana Teachers Skeptical Of Evaluations.

The Indianapolis Star (12/1) reports that a new Indiana University survey “yielded perhaps unsurprising results on educators’ sentiments about controversial teacher evaluations,” showing that Indiana “teachers are far more skeptical of the merits of teacher evaluations than superintendents and principals are.” The article concludes that ED recently reviewed Indiana’s NCLB waiver, and found that “the state’s teacher evaluations had relied less on student test scores than what had been originally promised.”
