Making roughly 40 percent of a teacher’s annual evaluation based on student test scores is a “good place to be,” the head of the state Board of Regents said Wednesday.
During an interview Thursday on “The Capitol Pressroom,” Merryl Tisch, the chancellor of the state’s education policy board, said the state’s 17 Regents are “tinkering” with how to weigh a new rating system for teacher ahead of a June 30 deadline for the board to have regulations in place.
“We are now tinkering with how we get to a place where we balance the state tests with the local tests with the observation,” Tisch said on the public radio program. “I think somewhere around the 40 percent mark for objective measures that include state testing and the local tests is probably a good place for us to be.”
Currently 40% of the APPR rating is based on test scores - 20% based on state tests, 20% based on local measures.
How is doing the exact same thing "tinkering" with the system?
Tisch is simply doubling down on the system as is - a test-centric evaluation system that perpetuates the Endless Testing regime.
She must be forced out as chancellor and if the heavy hearts in the legislature are too scared to send her packing, they must pay a political price for their support of her and her Endless Testing regime.
