Competency Based Teacher Evaluation Guide. GEM Bulletin 70-3.
Johnson, Charles E.; Bauch, Jerold P.
This document contains a four-part checklist designed for use to determine the extent to which elementary school teaching personnel at various levels (teacher, assistant, and aide) have acquired particular competencies. The introduction notes that it is considered a prototype rather than a finished instrument totally inclusive of all competencies. The guide is suggested for use by each of several specialists, each working on-the-job with the teacher at different times. Part 1, "General Behaviors, Qualities and Competencies Characteristic of Teachers in Early Childhood and Elementary Schools," contains 19 items each of which includes three possible descriptive responses. (Sample question: Does the person show sufficient patience and understanding with children?) Part 2, "Specific Behaviors Performed by Certified Teachers in Early Childhood and Elementary Schools," contains 84 items with four possible responses ranging from "Performs this behavior with a high measure of skill and efficiency" to "Not applicable or no basis for judgement." (Sample item: Helps pupils use a teaching machine. Prepares daily activity plans.) Part 3, "Specific Behaviors Performed by Teaching Assistants in Early Childhood and Elementary Schools," and Part 4, "Specific Behaviors Performed by Aides in Early Childhood and Elementary Schools," contain 37 and 31 items respectively and provide for the same choice of four responses as Part 2.
