'VAM attempts to use complex statistical calculations on students' standardized test scores in previous years to predict how well a student should perform on future tests; the resulting test performance of an individual student - not accounting for myriad outside factors - is supposed to magically show whether that student's most recent teacher was effective or not," said ATPE Governmental Relations Director Jennifer Canaday.
"If T-TESS were merely a formative tool to help teachers grow, we'd be having a different discussion," notes Canaday. "However, schools are using T-TESS and similar appraisal systems to make high-stakes decisions about teacher compensation and employment. When teachers' paychecks and contracts are dependent on the outcome of these appraisals, the validity and integrity of the appraisal process matters greatly."
Canaday explains that to avoid having two discrete evaluation systems in use at the same time, most school districts employ only one appraisal system, and the majority of districts will opt to use the state-recommended model rather than developing their own. The problem with incorporating elements that TEA might expect districts to use as formative tools, such as VAM, is that the same evaluation instrument is being used for summative scoring of teachers and then making high-stakes employment-related decisions based on those evaluations scores.
"There's a big difference," Canaday says, "between districts saying, 'This is an instrument that might provide slightly beneficial feedback to you as a teacher of a tested subject,' and telling teachers, 'This is the instrument that will be used to determine whether you still have a job next year.'"
"At a time when the federal government has taken important steps to decrease the focus on testing, there are widespread reports of flaws in the testing system, and parents are increasingly opting their children out of taking the tests, it makes no sense that Texas policymakers keep looking to test scores to determine if students, teachers, and schools are making the grade," says Canaday.
