A Standards-Based Approach to Improving Teaching:
Teacher Performance Assessment Consortium
February 8, 2011
1:00 – 2:00 PM EST
On Tuesday, February 8, 2011 from 1:00 – 2:30 p.m. (EST), the Alliance for Excellent Education and the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (AACTE) will cohost a webinar about an initiative launched by the Teacher Performance Assessment Consortium. This initiative holds promise for shaping a common vision of skilled teaching commensurate with the national goal of preparing all students for college and careers. Twenty states have joined the AACTE, the Council of Chief State Schools Officers, and Stanford University to create a common teacher performance assessment that can be used to make preparation and licensing performance based. The webinar will facilitate a conversation about the pilot underway and the implications for policies to improve the quality, consistency, and coherence of teaching nationwide. The webinar will also include a question and answer period to address questions submitted by viewers across the nation.
