Texas California Massachusetts Flatlining Test Scores Nothing Makes Sense in Physics Education Michael Marder, Co-Director of UTeach and Professor of Physics
The University of Texas at Austin Student Flow Plots Average Score Change All better-off students who scored 60%-70% on math TAKS in spring 2005. A way to display tens of millions of student test scores So why do we hear that costs are doubling and scores are flatlining? Scores of well-off and low-income students have risen in almost every state since 2000. Conventional Wisdom UTeach Bronx High School of Science City College University of Illinois Uni High (Urbana) Cornell UC Santa Barbara UT Austin Where I'm coming from Texas' Student Success Initiative raised scores for tens of thousands of low-performing low-income students and scores stayed up for years New York New Jersey Student Success Initiative UTeach Illinois Public School Evaluations NY Post, February 2012
Teachers who got zero ratings

When it comes to teaching math, she’s a zero.
Pascale Mauclair, a tenured, $75,000-a-year sixth-grade teacher in Queens, placed at the bottom of the heap of New York’s schoolteachers, according to rankings released by the Department of Education yesterday.

Mauclair got a cumulative score of zero, with a zero margin of error, for the 2009-10 school year.
Her rating was based on five years of data, indicating that DOE brass were confident she was ranked where she was supposed to be.

The score for the 37-year-old, who teaches at PS 11 Kathryn Phelan in Woodside — an “A”-rated school — was so low for each of the past five years that she got a zero cumulative score.

[B]y conducting scientifically-based research studies that apply rigorous, systematic, and objective methodology to obtain reliable and valid knowledge, it is possible to identify educational practices and activities that result in improved student learning.

random assignment and quasi-experimental designs [are considered] to be the most rigorous methods to address the question of project effectiveness

Schneider et al, AERA, 2006 Charter Schools Targets Listening passively to a lecture, doing many easy, repetitive tasks, or practicing irrelevant skills produce little learning (Wieman, 2012) Pollock and Finkelstein (2010) The consensus is that there is absolutely no consensus on the theory of high Tc superconductivity (Anderson, 1997) Factors, Orders of Magnitude XXXXXX xxxxx XXXXXXX XXXXXXX XXXXXXX XXXXXX XXXXXXXXX XXXXXXXXX XXXXXXX XXXXXX XXXXXXXX XXXXXXX XXXXXX XXXXXX XXXXXX XXXXXX Coalition, PhysTEC
