New Year Reading


Some light geek reading for the new year:

How to Measure Anything: Finding the Value of “Intangibles” in Business [1]

The book by Douglas Hubbard, follows the premise that:

If it matters at all, it is detectable/observable.

If it is detectable, it can be detected as an amount (or range of possible amounts).

If it can be detected as a range of possible amounts, it can be measured.

If that premise holds, then the same should hold in education as it does in business.

Perhaps weโ€™ll find it is possible to measure items within the Department for Educationโ€™s Teachersโ€™ Standards, including the value of โ€˜goodโ€™ in this from 1.7:

maintain good relationships with pupils

Weโ€™ll see.
