The initial results of the Gates Foundation’s Measures of Effective Teaching are important but not all that surprising; highly effective teachers are substantially better at the 7cs:

Care: cares about students and tries to understand how they feel

Control: creates an respectful and on-task environment

Clarify: has good ways of explaining difficult things

Challenge: students say they learn a lot very day

Captivate: makes lessons interesting

Confer: students speak up and teachers respects ideas

Consolidate: checks understanding and teacher feedback helps

The report defends the use of value-added data and student feedback in teacher evaluations
