Many experts have cautioned against making value-added modeling, a relatively new practice, the sole or primary measure by which a teacher is judged. A variety of studies have found that the results for individual teachers can swing widely from year to year. In New York, additional concerns have been raised because the state standardized tests at the heart of the model were recently judged by state officials to be too predictable and easy to pass. www.solicitorservice.co.uk
