The Improvement of Aggregate Teaching Effectiveness in a School Division. Occasional Paper No. 18.
The aggregate level of teaching effectiveness in a school division can be improved over a 5-year period if attention is paid to the administrative decisions of teacher selection, assignment, development, and retention/release. A model has been constructed with four behavioral dimensions: warmth, indirectness, cognitive development, and enthusiasm. The empirical measurement of these dimensions allows predictive evaluation for teacher selection, formative evaluation for teacher development, and summative evaluation for retention or release decisions. The area of teacher assignment can be improved by consultation and student selection; however, more constructive methods are in the developmental stage.
