Here in the glorious state of Michigan, teacher compensation based on standardized tests scores is right where we are headed. I am very lucky that I work with an administration that believes my evaluation at this time is based on classroom observation, and evaluating my lessons and how they align with the curriculum. Some districts in our state hinge being a "highly effective" teacher on all students scoring a certain percentage on a common assessment test in the district. I do not know of any public school classroom where all students will score 80% or higher on any tests. Usually, on the assessments I give my class, the mean is around 80% (sometimes higher, sometimes slightly lower), but that mean includes my students who get 100% and those who fail. The new evaluation standards will only prove successful in driving good teachers out of the profession.
