Self-evaluation Procedures for Teachers.
Struyk, Lydia Ruth
A set of self-evaluation procedures using videotape was developed to provide teachers with a means for observing their teaching and then reflecting on what occurred. The self-evaluation model consists of two components: (1) a transition observation instrument (TOI) which was designed based on classroom management variables known to influence transition effectiveness; and (2) a user's manual consisting of basic information needed to code the TOI and a reference text on classroom management strategies. For the actual videotaping a timeline was developed for distinguishing allocated time from transition time and determining the lengths of allocated time segments and transition time segments within class activities. The evaluation procedures were field tested with experienced elementary, secondary, and college teachers who watched a videotape of a middle school science teacher and coded the TOI following procedures described in the manual. A teacher using the procedure would videotape his or her own classroom activities, watch the videotape, and code observed classroom management variables onto the TOI. A detailed scenario of a middle school English teacher's use of the procedure illustrates how it functions. (AMH)
