Supervision of Instruction: The Relationship of Theory and Practice to Accountability.
McNeil, John D.
The information in this paper aims at providing assistance to those supervisors who design accountability plans. The author (1) analyzes the frequently overlooked distinctions needed to be made in considering accountability plans; and (2) discusses the more recent tools for implementing teacher accountability. Some distinctions presented include the differences between process and product accounting and the difference between types of actions that can be taken by a supervisor should it be discovered that the expectations for teacher advancement of student learning growth are not being met. Two innovative tools discussed in the report are the supervisor-teacher preinstructional conference and a teacher performance test. (JF)
