I’m included this link as the idea of player and team assessment in professional sports has begun to change. I just find this a fascinating topic in how our society is seeing a shift in how we evaluate in general including in the realm of professional sports. In the past player evaluation was done by experts who would watch and make a decision – the process is very subjective. Analytics provide ways to quantify in numbers what we see happen on the ice or field. The same goes for teams. While at the end of the day the score is what matters, analysts have found metrics to identify keys to long term success for teams as well.
Dr. Marzano, a nationally known educational researcher and developer of the Marzano Teacher Evaluation Model and the Marzano School Leadership Evaluation Model, discusses how districts may use teacher evaluation models as primarily either measurement systems –which provide a static picture of a teacher’s performance at a given point; or as growth systems—which track improvements in teacher pedagogy over time. - See more at: http://www.marzanoevaluation.com/news/teacher-evaluation-whats-fair-whats-effective/#sthash.KaHjK1uL.dpuf
This blog is the shared thoughts of school administrators that want to share best practices in education. All of the authors have different experiences in education but all have the same goal; what is best for students
In their widely read article “Inside the Black Box,” Mr. Black
and Mr. Wiliam demonstrated that improving formative assessment
raises student achievement. Now they and their colleagues report on
a follow-up project that has helped teachers change their practice
and students change their behavior so that everyone shares
responsibility for the students’ learning.
The information in this website helps school leaders and teachers in gathering, analysing, interpreting, and using information about students' progress and achievement. The emphasis is on the formative use of assessment to improve students’ learning and teachers’ teaching as both respond to the information it provides.
