A Think Twice Review of:
Measures of Effective Teaching—Asking Students About Teaching
Think Twice - Nov 15, 2012
Publisher/Think Tank - The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
A recent report from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation's Measures of Effective Teaching (MET) Project presents advice on administering and using information from student surveys to evaluate teachers and provide feedback to teachers.
Reviewer(s) - Eric M. Camburn, The University of Wisconsin-Madison
Eric Camburn, an Associate Professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, reviewed the report for the Think Twice think tank review project and found that the report makes many sensible recommendations for using student surveys for measuring teaching effectiveness. Unfortunately there is no body of literature (methodological or conceptual) that can be used to support the report's recommendations or using student surveys for data driven decision-making.
