National Board Certified Teacher Anthony Cody in this blog post compares the National Board Certification process to current efforts to evaluate teachers' effectiveness based on standardized test scores. He writes that NBCTs are evaluated based on a set of standards that go beyond scores to include responding to students' needs, building a classroom community and engaging students. Cody also details what he says a quality evaluation would entail and gives advice to reformers who he describes as misguided.
