A Feasible Scheme for the Evaluation of Instructors. S.M.B.* (*Do Not Fold, Spindle, Mutilate, or Bend); Conference for
Morin, Lloyd H.
Teacher evaluation determines tenure, salary, academic rank, or promotion and must be based on content, purpose, or nature of the teaching activity before, during, and after the classroom visit. Its six principles are: (1) realization of its necessity and complexity, (2) objective attitude, (3) focus on definable segments of observed behavior of both student and teacher, (4) prior descriptions of desired changes in student behavior, (5) agreement by teacher and evaluator on teaching objectives, and (6) its value to the school's total instructional development. Based on these principles, an assessment procedure is proposed to provide: (1) faculty acceptance, (2) improved instruction for the whole college, (3) objectivity in retention or dismissal of probationers, (4) increased teacher job-satisfaction, (5) legal satisfaction of evaluation role, and (6) better student evaluations. Each objective has certain performance criteria: (1) most faculty will prefer this objectivity, (2) faculty will articulate objectives and develop innovations, (3) teacher retention or re"ease will be challenged less often and probationary performance will improve, (4) teacher turnover and absenteeism will decrease, (5) evaluation reports will satisfy chief administrators, and (6) as teachers relate course content to stated objectives student complaints will decrease. Including non-instructional considerations, procedures require separate orientations for the entire faculty, for probationary teachers, and for tenured faculty. (HH)
