Portfolios Support Tennessee Department of Education’s Efforts to Provide Personalized Professional Learning for Tennessee Educators

 

Tennessee State Board of EducationNashville, TN – The Tennessee Department of Education released a new report today that explores the use and expansion of student growth portfolio models, which are an alternative form of educator evaluation that measures student growth. The report summarizes findings from analyses of the scores, the impact of portfolios on teacher practice, and its influence on teachers’ perceptions of evaluation.

Generally, the report finds that portfolio scores are well-aligned to other evaluation scores and suggests that portfolios strengthen the department’s work to create a more accurate, personalized evaluation system for all teachers.

Around 50 percent of teachers who used a portfolio received a higher growth score than they would have if they had used a schoolwide growth measure instead.

NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter images reveal network of intersecting ridges on Mars

 

Written by Guy Webster
NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – Thin, blade-like walls, some as tall as a 16-story building, dominate a previously undocumented network of intersecting ridges on Mars, found in images from NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.

The simplest explanation for these impressive ridges is that lava flowed into pre-existing fractures in the ground and later resisted erosion better than material around them.

A new survey of polygon-forming ridges on Mars examines this network in the Medusae Fossae region straddling the planet’s equator and similar-looking networks in other regions of the Red Planet.

This view from the HiRISE camera on NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter shows part of an area on Mars where narrow rock ridges, some as tall as a 16-story building, intersect at angles forming corners of polygons. (NASA/JPL-Caltech/Univ. of Arizona)
