Making the rest as good as the best | Mott MacDonald, 16 May 2013 [cached]
We’re capturing best practice for the benefit of the whole profession.†Rob Ramsdell, Mott MacDonald project director
Mott MacDonald project director Rob Ramsdell explains: “Existing assessments focus on academic achievement and don’t measure the quality of teaching that pupils receive. Tripod diagnoses conditions in classrooms, highlighting the teaching skills and practices that help kids of all abilities to advance.
“Our findings will help educators by identifying the skills, knowledge and techniques that deliver the best results,†he adds. The insight gained will be used to shape better targeted professional development for teachers and is expected to influence policy related to teacher accountability and performance related pay. As well as enabling the MET project team to identify excellence, establish benchmarks for best practice and develop professional guidance, the Tripod methodology efficiently provides teachers with feedback on how they perform.
Tripod surveys were completed by 100,000 pupils at the end of the 2009/10 academic year. With another year to run before the MET project concludes, initial findings were released to a national audience in Washington DC in December 2010. “These showed that the survey responses were important measures of effective teaching, validating the Tripod methodology,†Rob says.
