Email question: How can schools effectively use PT/ the chart as a means of accountability for teachers/ student learning rather than state assessments. It is my feeling that the chart will allow for evaluating true teacher accountability with instruction, but my concern is, how do you measure all of the areas (behavior/output) that schools are looking at?
