TeacherMatch is onto Something

While we are highlighting improved and expanded uses of technology in schools, I should mention TeacherMatch.

Using psychometrics, predictive analytics and robust methodology TeacherMatch has designed an Educator’s Professional Inventory (EPI) that helps schools and districts find and develop the most effective teachers.

Founded by two educators who know the challenges of effective hiring, Ron Huberman and Don Fraynd, TeacherMatch is more than a hiring tool. It delves deeply into a candidate’s approach to classroom learning, determination, and cognitive skills…improving the fit between teacher and school.

By helping to pinpoint the most qualified teachers in a fair and objective way TeacherMatch is improving teaching quality, which directly correlates to improved student achievement. Some of their research can be found at http://www.teachermatch.org
