Linking teacher evaluation and student learning by Pamela D Tucker( )

If you've ever doubted that it was fair or effective to judge teachers on the basis of student test scores alone, then here's a book that will introduce you to better ways to use measures of student achievement in your teacher assessment system. The authors take you to four schools to show you how to link teacher performance to student learning by using the following objective measurements: (1) Quality of student work and how it reflects the outcomes specified and taught by the teacher; (2) Level of student content knowledge during pre- and post-instruction assessments; (3) Student progress toward annual, quantifiable academic goals; and (4) Learning gains achieved by students in relation to their growth-rates in previous years. Appendixes filled with organizers and rubrics give you hands-on ways to adapt the book's methodologies to your own situation

13 editions published between 2002 and 2016 in English and German and held by 811 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A teacher portfolio--a collection of information about a teacher's practice--gives teachers a voice in selecting, presenting, and interpreting the work they do. Although portfolios can be used for a variety of purposes and for teachers at any developmental stage, this book focuses on their use by practicing teachers for the purposes of evaluation and professional development. Chapter 1, "Handbook on Teacher Portfolios: An Introduction," defines "portfolio" and explains what it has to offer the professional educator and how it can be used. Chapter 2, "Developing a Teacher Portfolio," offers guidance on how to structure and develop an effective portfolio. Chapter 3, "Putting Portfolios into Action," provides a broader perspective on what to consider in the implementation of portfolios. Chapter 4, "Teacher Portfolios and Teacher Evaluation," and chapter 5, "Teacher Portfolios and Professional Development," explore the two main uses of portfolios. Chapter 6, "The Role of Portfolios for the Teaching Profession," summarizes what the education community has learned about portfolios and projects what direction portfolios will take. Each chapter contains charts, tables, and references. Ten appendices contain tools for structuring, organizing, and implementing portfolios. Text, figures, and templates are included in a companion cd-rom. (Wfa)
