Teacher Performance Assessment Instruments: Manual for Data Collectors.
Okey, James R.; And Others
The five instruments and the procedures in this manual were designed to assess teaching competencies selected for the Georgia department of education. The system, designed to assess teaching competence in an on-the-job setting included the following steps: (1) identifying desirable teaching competencies; (2) identifying behaviors that correspond to the competencies; (3) developing instruments to assess the behaviors; (4) preparing a training program in the use of the observation instruments; (5) conducting research and evaluation studies to determine the validity of the competencies and indicators, the reliability and validity of the instruments, and the adequacy of the training program; and (6) revising the instruments and training procedures. Over 4,000 teachers, administrators, and college professors participated in the selection of the competencies; teachers and administrators helped to select behaviors related to the competencies, prepare materials for the training program, and conduct trial administrations of the instruments. Teaching competencies involved planning and managing instruction, instruction, providing a learning environment, evaluating, and professional responsibilities. A statement of purpose and conditions of use are included for each instrument, as well as information on data collection. The instruments are entitled: Teaching Plans and Materials; Classroom Procedures; Interpersonal Skills; Professional Standards; and Student Perceptions. (Author/JAC)
