Cooper Speaker Series: Ethan Hutt

"Off the Mark: How Grades, Ratings, and Rankings Undermine Learning (but don’t have to)"

  • - EST
  • Holloway Hall

Ethan Hutt, Gary Stuck Faculty Scholar and Associate Professor at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, will present a Cooper Lecture on Wednesday, February 7th in Holloway Hall from 11:00 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. Hutt’s research focuses on the relationship between schools, the law, and education policy. In particular, he is interested in the historical development, modern use, and on-going effects of the metrics we use to describe and evaluate our schools. His work asks: where did these numbers come from? How did they become central to the operation of schools? And what effects have they had for how we think about what schools can and should do? He has explored these questions across a range of topics including the history grades, standardized test scores, measures of attendance, and measures of effective teaching

This lecture is open to the UVA community. No RSVP needed to attend. If you have questions, please contact Jesse Philips at [email protected].
