Evaluating Teaching Performance.
Stemnock, Suzanne K.
This document updates a 1969 circular (ED 033 448) taking a new survey during the summer and fall of 1971. A questionnaire (included in the document) was sent to all school systems enrolling 25,000 or more pupils. The summary data are based on the responses of 110 school systems having teacher evaluation programs which they did not plan to revise in 1971-72. The topics covered include 1) purposes of evaluation; 2) frequency of evaluation; 3) evaluators; 4) evaluation procedures; and 5) appeal procedures. Examples of new practices designed to help the teacher help himself improve his performance and the quality of the education in his school are given. A number of evaluation forms are included to show the variety of approaches used. These are 1) Brevard County, Fla.; 2) Hampton, Va.; 3) Columbus, Ohio; 4) San Antonio, Texas; 5) Fort Worth, Texas; 6) DeKalb County, Ga.; 7) Colorado Springs, Colo.; and 8) Mt. Diablo, Calif. (MBM)
