Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The authors present a series of frames that may mediate the original theory of action underpinning the use of student growth measures (SGMs) in educator evaluation, including technical challenges, practitioner perspectives and responses, ethical principles, legal considerations, policy contexts, and pragmatic issues. The authors also consider various future possibilities for the use of SGMs and contemplate whether the tidal wave of SGMs in educator evaluations is set to recede.
