A Look at Teacher Evaluation.
Harsh, J. Richard
The positive and negative factors that exist in the area of teacher evaluation are surveyed. The traditional aversions to evaluation which have created a negativistic environment of ambiguity and frustration in terms of educational improvement are discussed. The factors, processes, tenets, and characteristics of effective evaluation that have been developed in past and present educational research are enumerated. The paper presents specific criteria which would provide a systematic process that incorporates the positive aspects of evaluation by use of performance criteria and behavioral objectives. These criteria are seen as initiating a new trend in teacher role perception that offers more effective performance and measurement. Emphasis is placed on the differential roles and styles of teaching that characterize the profession today and greatly extend the parameters of the teaching experience. Guidelines are presented for a model for future evaluation which emphasizes teacher-student and teacher-administrator interaction and provides for increased utilization of individual skills, knowledges, and attitudes that results in a maximization of performance outcomes. By applying these principles through more precise systems of evaluation a more meaningful process of educational accountability can be achieved. (AE)
