Teachers and parents are taking to Twitter, at #evaluatethat, to point out the countless ways in which teachers help their students that cannot be assessed by student standardized test scores or other traditional methods of evaluation.

The effort was inspired by Stephanie Lavender Weber, a teacher in Georgia who spent the night with her students in their school when a snowstorm hit and students couldn’t get home. According to the blog With A Brooklyn Accent, Weber wrote on her Facebook page about taking care of the kids until they could get home and ended the post with #evaluate that. She is a member of the Badass Teachers Association, whose members followed up with more tweets about the “value” teachers offer to students that go beyond what can be put into a value-added formula.

Here are some of the tweets:
