Does your school require you to publicly post data in your classroom, and if so, how? Have you found this to be motivating to students? In another group that I follow, a teacher posted about being upset because she was required to post NWEA (standardized test) scores with names. Bobby Smith - 216; Eli Carr - 176; and so on, in the classroom for everyone to see. Aside from this being a giant violation of FERPA, is this anything you're required to do? What's your opinion on it? I worked at a school once that had us post class data: Average Math Score - 213; Average Reading Score - 205. I don't mind that much, I guess, except it was kind of useless. We'd then make some kind of graph to show how it went up or down over the year, displayed for all to see. I've also read about a certain charter school well-known for tough academics sending out a newsletter with names in it of which students were in the Red, Yellow, and Green zones (below, on, above level). I looked for the link of the article I had read about it but couldn't find it. The article had said that it was demotivating because the same kids were always in red. Thoughts?
