I heard two interesting statements today around teaching, learning, and assessment.
Statement 1: If a teacher does not have 80% of his/her students at or above goal then they are not teaching.
Statement 2: When looking at test scores look at the teacher who has the lowest and you’ll see who had the most challenging class.
I have some definite thoughts on both these. Personally, I find them both to be false. Neither is based on anything that proves or disproves whether a teacher was teaching or had a difficult class. I would love to hear what you think!
