How Not to Define Good Teaching
The latest draft of how to determine whether or not a teacher is any good. Here, too, is an example of suggested contractual language to implement the new evaluation system:
"7. When a final criterion score includes a fractional number (for example 2.3), all scores with fractionals below .5 will be rounded down and all fractionals .5 or above will be rounded up, for example, a score of 2.33 would receive a final criterion score of 2 and a score of 2.5 would receive a final criterion score of 3."
