Formal Evaluation of Certificated Education Staff in Alberta: Practices and Policies. (A Survey Conducted by Alberta Education in 1980).
Alberta Dept. of Education, Edmonton. Planning and Research Branch.
In order to determine current practices and policies concerning the formal evaluation of certified teaching personnel in Alberta, this survey was conducted by means of a questionnaire (appended) sent to all school districts in the province. The findings were then compared to those of a similar survey conducted in 1977. The comparison revealed that more beginning and tenured teachers were evaluated in 1980 than in 1977. The survey also demonstrated that formal evaluations are being increasingly utilized to improve teacher performance. In addition, more districts are using standard evaluation forms than in the past.
