What Is the Role of the Administrator As an Evaluator of Instruction?
McDermott, Kathleen R.
The role of the administrator as an evaluator of instruction is examined in this paper. Included are a definition of terms and discussions of the historical development and purposes of instructional evaluation. Evaluation methods such as observation, clinical supervision, evaluation instruments, self-evaluation, and student achievement scores are examined next, as well as the role of the administrator. A conclusion is that total instructional evaluation assesses the teaching process and student learning outcomes and involves subjective judgment. The principal is most often responsible for evaluating instruction, which creates dual roles of supervision and teacher support. (22 references) (LMI)
