First, this is a site for teachers, not for use in the classroom by students. I
read and took notes on the information for my own use in developing
professional goals as a teacher.

I was misled by the grammatical error in the title on the MERLOT list to believe
this site would be an amateurish, possibly reductive list of educational
standards. Instead, I found a highly literate, professional, and
well-thought-out examination of what makes a good teacher, and a proposal for a
national board certification of good teachers.
Teacher evaluation in the profession is such a confusing, subjective process: I
had hoped to find a checklist to replace the ubiquitous (and notoriously
inaccurate) student evaluation scores for ascertaining how good a teacher is. I
didn't find that; but the detailed discussions of various attributes of good
teachers can certainly provide goals and personal objectives for teachers in
their quest to improve.
While National Board Certification of good teachers is a worthy, commendable
concept, methods of rating teachers along the specified lines are not laid out
on this site. Teacher/readers are therefore, albeit inspired, still left with
the same old question: how can we rank or reward good teaching?

Technical Remarks:

There are many links to professional websites for further information on how to
improve teaching.
