The Assessment Revolution: New Viewpoints for Teacher Evaluation.
Burkhart, Robert C., Ed.
This book presents the proceedings (speeches, discussions, and results) of the New York State Symposium on Evaluation in Education. The underlying purpose of the meeting was to respond to the State's proposal that the present approach to teacher certification and education be abandoned as ineffective and inappropriate, to engage in a deliberate and detailed discussion of workable alternatives, and to develop a design for action. The underlying direction of the symposium was toward evaluation and certification of teachers according to specified performance criteria and the evaluation of teacher education programs according to the teaching ability of their graduates. The content of the symposium, which evolved in response to four basic tenets of the performance evaluation viewpoint and the issues raised by each, treats four main questions: (1) What is wrong with the existing system of certification and teacher education? (2) Why propose performance evaluation? (3) How would performance evaluation work? and (4) If adopted, what steps can be taken to implement this as a total program? Among materials included in the publication are a model for performance evaluation certification, a comparative analysis of classroom observation techniques, and an extensive bibliography on "Evaluation in Education."
