Evaluation of Biology Teachers.
Dieter, Donn Louis
The purposes of this study were to identify the criteria that are used for evaluating the competencies of biology teachers, to determine the relative importance of these criteria, and to determine if the occupational status of judges affects the way they value specific criteria. The study group consisted of 220 selection committee members of the Outstanding Biology Teacher Award program of the National Association of Biology Teachers which was conducted in 46 states in 1970. The general methods and instruments employed included a review of literature, a questionnaire, and analysis of questionnaire responses. Statistical analysis indicated no significant differences existed between ratings given to items when used for preselection and the ratings given to the same items when used for the final evaluation of candidates for the Outstanding Biology Teacher Award. Results also indicated that the occupational status of various judges does relate to the way they might value some criteria. Recommendations are suggested. An extensive bibliography and appendixes of related material are included. (Author/MJM)
