Teacher to Teacher Talk: Student Performance on MSPAP.
Maryland State Dept. of Education, Baltimore. Div. of Instruction.
This publication is a distillation of the most salient, most often repeated observations and recommendations of Maryland teacher-test scorers on their experiences scoring student responses to the Maryland School Performance Assessment (MSPAP) test in 1994. Feedback is organized into perceptions about what would be pertinent to share with other teachers and actions or what a teacher-scorer anticipates doing in that classroom in the coming year based on the scoring experience. This year's edition also contains a new section, "Look How Far We've Come," in response to the increasing number of positive observations from teachers who are veterans of previous years' scoring projects. Comments are organized by grade level and content area (general, reading, writing/language use, mathematics, science, social studies) though many comments cross content areas and grade levels. (JB)
