5 Why Kids Should Grade Teachers My Big Three Test scores can reveal when kids are not learning; they can’t reveal WHY. They might make teachers relax or despair- but they can’t help teachers improve.Survey results don’t change depending on race or income- not the case with test data, which can rise depending on how white and affluent a school is.If you ask kids the right questions, they can identify, with uncanny accuracy, their most- and least-effective teachers.Will share my big three takeaways- focus on the research that was referenced in the article that confirms the reliability of student voice as a viable measure. Share professional example of Stakeholder Surveys that were conducted when I was a principal/teacher. Transition to teacher highlighted in Teaching Channel video and how he uses the results of Student Voice surveys. Encourage the audience to focus on the questioning the principal ask as survey results are reviewed. Listen to the students- what are their thoughts about doing teacher surveys??
