Study on Performance-Based Test for New Teachers Yields Mixed Results

 


Does testing make for better teaching? The first major independent research study on a closely watched licensing test for teachers that measures classroom skills, the edTPA, has some mixed answers to that question.

New teachers who passed the edTPA on their first try tended to boost their students' reading achievement more than those who didn't, according to the study, conducted by the National Center for Analysis of Longitudinal Data in Education Research, or CALDER.
