Response to femmocrat (Reply #27)

28. A lot of them like it. It's literally "idiot-proof", meaning, quite literally, ANY idiot can do it.

 

And usually does.

Danielson lends itself to cut-and-paste commentary... and, alas, that's generally the nature of the much vaunted "feedback" that the teacher gets.

And a ( non-idiot) admin friend who does these evals tells me they're investing on some kind of speech-to-text gizmos ( Yay, even more $$$ for the tech companies!) that will help idiots maximize their output more fully. ( i.e. knock-off more observations in a shorter period of time so they ... admins... don't have to work too hard.)

The trend is toward non-teachers rating teachers and the DFWK is *ideal* for that. Strips away the complexity and nuances involved in the actual transmission of knowledge.

WARPY's got the gist of it, seems to me.
