The MET ProjectThe Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation launched the Measures of Effective Teaching (MET) project in fall 2009 to test new approaches to measuring effective teaching. The project’s goal is to help build fair and reliable systems for teacher observation and feedback to help teachers improve and administrators make better personnel decisions. With funding from the foundation, the data collection and analysis are being led by researchers from academic institutions, nonprofit organizations, and several private firms and are being carried out in seven urban school districts.
