Highlight: The quantification of the core purpose of the social role called teacher.
Synonym: PERFECT TEACHER replaces the quantification of results from activities with a judgment. AVERAGE TEACHER (by statistical definition of average) performs between plus or minus one standard deviation around the arithmetic mean of ratings of teachers; on average, 66 percent of students learn lessons average teachers offer, irrespective of the background, entering competence, demographic variations, etc. of learners. SPECIAL TEACHER gives priority to adjusting instruction, so it shows learners ways that perfect teachers include and average teachers do not use to meet lesson criteria; includes using more refined instruction and content to meet the same criteria for lessons; learners of special teachers result from incomplete or inadequate instruction of lessons to meet expected academic performance standards.
Antonym: FAILING TEACHER emphasizes as unacceptable the unnecessary number of trial-and errors of learners to complete lessons successfully.
