Qualitative School Data Input

Thanks to Sherman Dorn for this post.

Having been involved in the trenches of quantitative vs. qualitative data for evaluating pre-service teacher candidates and providing proof of our university's program for state and federal accrediting agencies, I am still struggling with how to deal with undefined data or, at best, constantly changing "goals". Am still clarifying my thoughts but I am convinced that not all of it is in the best interests of everyone involved. Some of the same political processes that blocked previous reform attempts are also keeping current efforts from being effective and/or correctly implemented. More thoughts later . . . am trying to take a few days to recover from an intense semester before the craziness of summer institutes starts.
