Congratulations! Based on your answers to the quiz, it has been determined that the practices you have in place for Preparation & Background are advanced. Keep up the good work! There are always ways to improve the way you build the profile of the ideal candidate, however, so keep in mind the following:
- Do you have a firm knowledge of teacher experience distribution across the district, as well as advance knowledge of when teachers may exit? This enables better long term planning.
- Do your districts policies provide automatic salary increases for teachers with master’s degrees, even though not all degrees are correlated with higher student achievement?
- Do all aspects of your recruiting strategy incorporate the most important teacher quality factors?
