Video Eye Aimed at Teachers in 7 School Systems

As part of the project to develop new ways to evaluate teachers, researchers have recruited 3,000 teachers in seven school systems — Dallas; Denver; Charlotte, N.C.; Hillsborough County, Fla.; Memphis; New York; and Pittsburgh — who allowed themselves to be videotaped in their classrooms. (As part of the agreement, only researchers can view the tapes, not school administrators).

Participants include teachers of grades four through nine in regular public schools.
