Teacher Self-Appraisal Source Book.
Roberson, E. Wayne
Teacher Self-Appraisal (TAS) is intended to help teachers in evaluating their daily teaching activity by means of a video-tape record. The process involves four phases: 1) determining objectives and appropriate teaching methods; 2) making the video tape; 3) observing the tape and recording the information on a coding card; and 4) analyzing the information. The system has produced a marked increase in teacher awareness, an improvement in teacher morale, an improvement in methods of instruction, and a significant increase in student achievement. The nine levels of objectives used are based on Bloom's Taxonomy of Educational Objectives, with three in the affective category and six in the cognitive. The methods used are either closed--lecture, demonstration, direction, question, mastery, and problemsolving--or open--clarification, inquiry, and dialogue. The teacher's expressions are divided into seven verbal and seven nonverbal categories of support, helping, receptive, routine, inattentive, unresponsive, and disapproval. The document includes transcripts and analyses of training tapes for four elementary sessions in social studies, arithmetic, reading, and science, and five secondary sessions in English, algebra, French, chemistry, and American problems. Four appendixes give TSA observation terms and definitions, ground rules for coding, suggested readings and resources, and brief information on computer analysis. (MBM)
