Copper Link
Final Project Questions
June 17th

Questions that I’m going to look at within the creation of my paper consist of the following:
We all agree that good teachers are critical to improving student learning, but what makes a good teacher? Can they be identified through student achievement? Should teachers be evaluated by the performance of their students on standardized tests? Are there other or better ways to describe a good teacher? Should teachers of the highest performing students be paid more than other teachers? We've been told time and time again that standardized tests aren't perfect but that they're the best tool we have for gauging aptitude and achievement. Is this really true? What are the flaws of such testing?
Let me know what you think. I’m going o play the devils advocate for this project and research the pros and cons of standardized testing. Thanks!
