Someone posted that we are able to evaluate students, so we should be evaluated ourselves. If any administrator wants to give me a 100 question multiple choice test like my students get at the end of the year, I'd be all for taking it as an evaluation. I'd even do an essay question, make copies of my lesson plans, whatever. But just like an actress on stage or a painter, my skill as a professional could not be gauged by a simple exam. *MY* students are tested on their knowledge and understanding of my subject. If the general public thinks that KNOWING how to teach is all that's needed, then fine, let's go down that road. Having a knowledge base and putting those skills into practice are too different things. If they weren't then every armchair quarterback would be on Monday night football.
