Teacher study groups are a valuable method of examining the validity of classroom assessments and determining how well the assessments align with student learning goals. The implementation of teacher study groups is based on a model from the Schools Around the World Academy for Teaching Excellence (Council for Basic Education 2000). The teacher study groups are composed of four to six teachers. Often a teacher solicits group members by sending out flyers to the faculty to find interested volunteers.
