  • New PARCC Scores Are Ugly, but the Real Question Is Why0

    • November 13, 2015

    (An important note for today’s post before we get started: PARCC results cannot and should not be compared to previous TCAP or CSAP results. Seriously, don’t do that. Yes, I’m looking at you.) A lot of kids my age would love to go to the park on a fine Friday like this one. I, however, […]

  • Don’t Fall Victim to MisNAEPery0

    • April 16, 2015

    Apparently, there has been some rampant speculation that little Eddie is actually little Eddies, that there is more than one of me. At least that’s what I’ve been told. Now I find that sort of talk a little disturbing. Who am I anyway? Maybe someone has seen my doppelganger out there. I’d also given consideration […]

  • NCTQ Slaps Down Colorado on Teacher Preparation: Will We Ever Learn?0

    • December 12, 2014

    There’s nothing to be proud about narrowly avoiding failure. It makes me nervous just to think about how Colorado still teeters on the edge when it comes to the quality of our teacher preparation. We know how important the role of the classroom instructor is for helping students learn, so the latest release of the […]
