Planning for the Evaluation of Teaching. NSPER: 79. A CEDR [Center on Evaluation, Development and Research] Monograph.
Duckett, Willard R., Ed.
This is a series of papers delivered at three National Symposia for Professionals in Evaluation and Research (NSPER) sessions in 1979. The agenda was the same at all sessions. The main topic was "Planning for the Evaluation of Teaching." The sessions were conducted in Charlotte, North Carolina; Milwaukee, Wisconsin; and Albuguerque, New Mexico. The participants agreed upon the importance of planning, the situation-specific nature of evaluation, and its dynamism. They believed a statement of philosophy concerning teacher evaluation is important. An examination of evaluation instruments for teacher evaluation indicated an emphasis on organizational maintenance rather than teaching improvement. A responsible evaluation must include formative, process, and summative considerations. The primary sources of data to be used include students, colleagues, administrators, and teachers' self reports. The secondary sources for data collection include observation, interviews, and rating scales. Feedback procedures such as audiotape, videotape, minicourses, interaction analyses, and student description are helpful in improving instruction. The editors and co-directors of NSPER: 79 developed a summary of the sessions, "The Basis for Evaluating Teaching." (DWH)
