If Rick Perry against Fraud, Why TPM

Rick Perry's Version of Gaming the Education System through TEA via Robert Scott

16 September 2011 at 1:26:23 PM

No one should be surprised that, in low services state Texas, Rick Perry puts no premium on public education. He has repeatedly cut the budget, turned down federal money that had strings attached that the education money be spent on, er, EDUCATION, and has kicked fixing education till the next Texas lege session so that he can run for president (priorities, priorities!)

I was thinking about Robert Scott and the Texas Projection Measure this morning and wondering whether that gaming of the education stats was because Perry was considering running for president at the time.

Rick Perry brought on Robert Scott to replace Shirley Neeley, who resigned in 2007

Somewhere along the line Robert Scott decided to put in a system that would game the TAKS scores. That was called the Texas Projection Measure. I myself started noticing it talked about last June 2010.  Essentially, the TPM was a fraudulent way to bump up, not individual TAKS scores but scores based on what they WOULD be if you bumped up or inflated the numbers and assumed they would go up the next year.

Incidentally, schools thought, including GRISD, that individual students scores were being lifted. No, the scores were lifted across a grade (rising tide lifts all boats)

When the Texas Lege started noticing that there were a huge number of schools that suddenly jumped up in performance ratings from what they were, they called in Robert Scott to talk to them. He stood them up. .

By July, 2010, Robert Scott had backtracked on the TPM and it was reversed.

Predictably, the performance ratings for schools DROPPED this year.

Some site, hilariously, is touting Robert Scott for Department of Education if Rick Perry was somehow elected? Really?
