Program teaches art of recognizing good teaching
Over the past several years, the school district has been making greater use of an educational program called Teachscape to help administrators develop consistent and effective measurements for how teachers perform in the classroom.
Administrators and parents like to think they can be objective in how they measure a teacher’s effectiveness, but Delahanty said the biggest roadblock is there is no single measurement of a student’s performance within a single classroom.
Because there are no clear measurements for student effectiveness, Delahanty said the goal is to find an effective and objective measurement for that teacher performance.
“The goal is to reduce disparity between evaluators,” said Delahanty.
As the administrators have become more comfortable using Teachscape to help evaluate teachers, the district has also branched out to include the teachers themselves into the program.
