'If You Can't Measure It, You Can't Manage It': Not True

Liz Ryan, Forbes, Dec 26, 2014
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Of course the sentiment expressed in the title has always been false. It is even somewhat surprising how many people act as though it were true. One thing I like about this article is how easily it transfers to education. The author writes, "Teachers are actually managing something far more important than test scores. They’re managing, massaging, inspiring, reinforcing and jollying along the only thing that helps a kid learn, which is the energy and trust in the classroom." Via Harold Jarche.
