In this presentation, Professor Guarino discusses common approaches to evaluating the quality of
teachers and schools, their strengths and weaknesses, and the controversies surrounding them.
The presentation covers the trajectory of quality assessment efforts from the beginning of No
Child Left Behind to the current state of affairs under the Every Student Succeeds Act and the
widespread adoption of the Common Core State Standards.

Cassandra Guarino is Professor of Education and Public Policy at the University of California
Riverside. She obtained her PhD in the Economics of Education from Stanford University in 1999
