Experts maintain that the model that uses the students score on tests carried out at the beginning and end of the year to evaluate the effectiveness of teachers provides an assessment gullible and not very reliable.

It also shows the extreme variability of results among teachers and classes, variability related to the composition of the materials, concluding that teachers of classes with disabled pupils or foreigners or by a large presence of excellence are unlikely to produce added value. The article suggests alternative approaches to assessment, based on professional knowledge related to efficacy standards developed and practiced in some U.S. states, standards that lingers, very useful to detect even professional skills for the prevention of early school leaving.
