Reminder: Tests Will Count More Than Supervisor Observations

On the eve of what what will almost surely be the largest amount of students to opt out of state tests ever (check this out or this or this) and in the midst of some familiar faces weighing in to not opt out (see here or here or here), it may be worth remembering that these tests, and those like them, will be worth more than the observations our own supervisors will perform next year.

Those tests will be worth 50% of teachers' score next year. 

The observations from our supervisors are now diluted with observations from "independent" evaluators and will be worth less than that. 

So there is quite a bit at stake with these boycotts against high-stakes test.
