Value-added testing can't fail, can it?

Posted By on Thu, Mar 8, 2012 at 2:11 PM

If we just test kids enough and then fire teachers whose kids don't improve their scores, how can we lose?

Well. What if a teacher cheated and her students, who got inflated test scores, didn't do so hot the next year with a teacher who didn't cheat. That couldn't result in the promotion of a cheating teacher and the firing of an honest teacher, could it?

Answer suggested here.
