Climate of Education Reform

Linda Darling-Hammond (2010)

“For teacher education, this is perhaps the best of times and the worst of times.”

  • It may be the best of times because so much hard work has been done by many teacher educators over the past two decades to develop more successful program models . . .
  • It may be the worst of times because there are so many forces in the environment that conspire to undermine these efforts.

National Context for Teacher Education

Successful transformation of university-based teacher education:

  • Strengthening coursework around:
    • Student learning and development
    • Assessment
    • Subject matter pedagogy
    • Teaching English language learners and special needs students
    • Connecting coursework to practice

At the heart of the reform

. . . connect theory to practice with well-designed clinical experiences.

...clinical preparation must be well integrated with content and pedagogy, and woven together throughout the program.

projected outcomes
Projected Outcomes
  • A reliable and valid Teacher Performance Assessment utilized to improve the consistency and quality of teacher effectiveness
  • An outcome database used by school districts to track teacher performance across the continuum of teachers’ careers
  • Provide information states could use to inform teacher quality initiatives, issue initial teacher licenses, and make accreditation decisions
  • An evidence-based methodology for making systematic decisions about recruitment, professional development and continuation of employment
  • A national technology platform for data management, analysis and reporting of teacher outcomes that are connected directly to student outcomes
  • An empirical foundation for developing a more coherent national agenda for teacher quality assessment
  • The foundation for using Teacher Performance Assessment as a professional development tool for in-service teachers

national implementation plan
National Implementation Plan

First Year – Tryouts of tasks

Second Year – Pilot test of the prototypes

Third Year – Field test, with collection of data to document validity, reliability, and fairness of assessment

spring tryouts march june 2010
Spring Tryouts (March-June 2010)

Testing Components of selected Prototypes:

Elementary Literacy Secondary English/Lang Arts

Elementary Math Secondary Math

Secondary Science

The Ohio IHEs chose to “smoke test” the planning and/or the assessment on student learning tasks.
