In fall 2009, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation launched the Measures of Effective Teaching, or MET, project to develop and test multiple measures of teacher effectiveness. The goal of the MET project is to improve the quality of information about teaching effectiveness available to education professionals within states and districts—information that will help them build fair and reliable systems for teacher evaluation and address teacher recruitment, training, professional development, and compensation challenges.
The Center for American Progress discussed the early findings of the MET project beginning with an overview of the MET project, information about the findings, and a question and answer period. The next segment of the meeting featured researchers connected to different dimensions of the MET project, followed by a panel of teachers involved in the project.
