Results-Oriented Supervision (for Teachers).
Katz, Stanley S.
Results-Oriented Supervision (R.O.S.) is a system for teacher supervision that focuses more on instructional improvement than on teacher evaluation. The supervisor and the teacher join together to formulate teaching objectives. After a period of implementation, a postconference is held to assess and restate or renew objectives. In the school system described here, implementation of R.O.S. began with teachers and administrators expressing a need for a better supervision system. A committee was formed to investigate supervision systems, and assistance was given by a supervision Task Force made up of central staff, department heads, and teachers. A principals' inservice subcommittee introduced the concept to principals. A coordinating committee implemented the program. After the program had functioned for several years, a review committee assessed the program through questionnaires and interviews. An outline of reactions, conclusions, and recommendations is included in the paper. (Author/JM)
