Is there any possible way to know your score on TeacherFit
Jun 2, 2012
Why are districts using these retail store-type Likert questionnaires which measure NOTHING but are used as screening tools?
An article is here:
I agree. And if you do not get in the magic 8 range . You are out.
Locally the largest school district in the state uses TeacherFit(to be tied) to screen out people.
A friend who is student teaching this semester was told by her CT: I was going to retire they (HR and P) asked me to come back for one more year to teach regular 5th grade as they could not find any elementary teachers.
Really not one? Maybe this off the shelf crap is not telling you what you think it is telling you.
I wish I could find out my score. If it is to low, which I am sure it is as I overthink questions, I will not apply to any teacherfit place. As it is a waste of my time.

Can someone explain how these questions were developed? They are a mess...ambiguity, grammatical errors, semantic conflicts:
'I almost always admit when I make a mistake' Seriously? That's the best way to pose that question?
It's OK to have a sloppy test if the results are used for nothing more than some basic introspection, but to hinge a decision to interview someone based on their 'score' in this quackery is nearly malpractice.
I hate these types of tests. They are so situational and I could honestly answer yes and no on most questions, depending on different situations.
I hate those personality screeners. A few of the districts around me use one and I am never sure what to answer the questions with since they are so weirdly worded.

My state is called TeacherInsight, but I'm assuming it's the same as I remember that question. This test is so situational for me and I have such a hard time answering the questions. I want there to be a comment box for me to explain my answer! That could be due to my inability to just answer a yes or no question, though...I always have to explain it. I think the Meyers-Briggs personality test would be a better test to take if they're going to analyze something.

Google Teacherfit and the Chicago Schools, Teacher Union and School Board!
