TEACHER EVALUATION AS A MEASURE OF PUPIL PERFORMANCE.
PANCRAZIO, SALLY; STARR, FAY H.
SCORES FROM 16 VARIABLES WERE USED TO ASSESS DIFFERENCES AMONG 194 JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL BOYS AND GIRLS OF 4 TEXAS COMMUNITIES WHO WERE AMONG MORE THAN 1,500 PUPILS INCLUDED IN THE "TEXAS HUMAN TALENT PROJECT." SUBJECTS WERE CLASSIFIED INTO "UP,""DOWN," OR "STABLE" SAMPLES. CLASSIFICATION INTO THE "UP" SAMPLE OF 19 BOYS AND 27 GIRLS REQUIRED AN INCREASE OF 2 OR MORE STANINES IN GRADE POINT AVERAGE FROM THE SEVENTH TO THE NINTH GRADE. CLASSIFICATION INTO THE "DOWN" SAMPLE OF 28 BOYS AND 20 GIRLS REQUIRED A DECREASE IN GPA OF 2 OR MORE STANINES. EACH SUBJECT CLASSIFIED INTO THE "STABLE" SAMPLE OF 50 BOYS AND 50 GIRLS OBTAINED IDENTICAL GRADE POINT AVERAGES AT THE SEVENTH AND NINTH GRADES. STANINES FOR THE GRADE POINT AVERAGES WERE OBTAINED FOR THE ENTIRE POPULATION OF 1,500 PUPILS IN THE 4 COMMUNITIES. ACHIEVEMENT TEST SCORES OBTAINED FROM THE CALIFORNIA ACHIEVEMENT TESTS IN ARITHMETIC, READING, AND LANGUAGE YIELDED RESULTS INDICATING THAT ALL THREE SAMPLES MADE SIGNIFICANT GAINS IN GRADE PLACEMENT FROM THE SEVENTH TO THE NINTH GRADE (AVERAGE GRADE PLACEMENT GAINS FOR THE "UP,""DOWN," AND "STABLE" SAMPLES WERE 2.1, 1.9, AND 2.5, RESPECTIVELY.) THE "UP" SAMPLE DID NOT MAKE GAINS IN PROPORTION TO THE MARKED INCREASE IN GPA FOR THAT SAMPLE, AND THE "DOWN" SAMPLE GAINS FOR THE ACHIEVEMENT TESTS DO NOT REFLECT THE SEVERE LOSS IN GPA FOR THE SUBJECTS OF THAT SAMPLE. THE "STABLE" SAMPLE, WITH GRADE PLACEMENT SCORES ABOVE THOSE FOR THE OTHER TWO SAMPLES AT THE SEVENTH GRADE, ENJOYED THE GREATEST GAINS IN GRADE PLACEMENT FOR THE THREE TESTS. (LP)
