David Berliner is one of our most distinguished educational researchers. He has received numerous honors for his studies of education. He is currently Regents’ Professor of Education Emeritus at Arizona State University.


This video is a presentation that he made at the Melbourne Graduate School of Education in Australia. He explains why standardized tests are a terrible basis for teacher evaluation because the tests primarily reflect student demographics, not teacher quality.


Please set aside the time to watch and listen to this important presentation by one of our great scholars.
