The Evaluatee Evaluates the Evaluator. ERS Circular No. 5.
Stemnock, Suzanne K.
This report contains descriptions of "client-oriented" evaluation programs--students evaluating teachers, teachers evaluating principals, and principals evaluating central office administrators. The information was gathered through questionnaires received from 29 of 67 school systems which had indicated in an earlier survey (of 500 school systems) that they conducted such evaluation programs. The information is presented to illustrate some of the approaches schools and school systems have used to implement evaluation by subordinates. Included are reports from 1) five systems in which some teachers in one or more schools have given their students the opportunity to evaluate them; 2) 19 systems where teachers in one or more schools have been permitted to evaluate their principals; 3) three systems which submitted forms used by principals to evaluate central office personnel and services (in one of these districts teachers also evaluate central office subject-matter coordinators and directors); and 4) four school system evaluation programs developed and administered by universities. The evaluation forms used by each are included along with information on the frequency of evaluation and use and disposition of forms. A bibliography lists 45 items under "Rating of Teachers by Students" and three under "Rating of Principals by Teachers." (JS)
