Teacher Evaluation. A CTF Conference Report.
Canadian Teachers' Federation, Ottawa (Ontario).
At this workshop, representatives of Canadian provincial teachers' associations came together to share information and discuss appropriate policy directions related to the evaluation and supervision of teachers. This report contains the texts of four major presentations and a summary of a panel presentation made at the meeting. The first presentation, on issues in teacher evaluation, discusses problems with the teacher evaluation process, including techniques, policies and procedures, goals, classroom observation, criteria, and rating forms. The second presentation, on the legal dimensions of teacher evaluation, focuses on the use of a teacher evaluation system to provide a basis for teacher dismissal, citing relevant provincial legislation and court cases. In the third presentation the speaker reviews research on teaching effectiveness and teaching strategies that can be used as a basis for teacher evaluation. The fourth presentation reviews advantages and disadvantages of several teacher evaluation techniques. A brief final section of the report presents a panel discussion on the appropriate outcomes of teacher evaluation. (Author/JM)
