Multiple Measures of Good Teaching – XChange Issue

In this issue of the Center XChange, we assemble a diverse set of perspectives on ways to capture teacher quality.  We take the stand that there should be multiple measures of good teaching—including evidence about student learning—and that these measures should form the basis for both evaluating teachers and, most importantly, guiding teachers’ professional growth. Center X believes that practicing teachers—along with other local school stakeholders—should be at the core of this debate and that their development of new and use of existing multiple measures will determine the success of this latest reform movement.
