My post on the Brookings chalkboard about teacher preparation, an institution for which research and evidence are hurdles that test scores need to get over before programs will use them.

Which seems backward: why would test scores have to pass muster to be used as outcomes? Scores already are used as outcomes by teachers and schools. Why aren’t preparation programs using them too? Are they even collecting information about how their students are doing in the classroom?
