Evaluative Economics: A Process To Compensate Teachers Based on Evaluation of Student Accomplishment of Instructional Objectives.
Hart, Jerry Lee
This document suggests a management plan for replacing fixed salary schedules for teachers with a pay structure based on student productivity. The plan is more a conceptual process of attacking the problem, rather than the resolved finality of a specific plan. The instructional objectives, the accomplishment evaluation, and the subsequent amount of compensation earned in accordance with this idea, are all basically determined by the professional staff itself as part of the evolutionary development of the suggested method. The author begins by outlining the historical unwillingness of public school employers and employees to attempt the correlation of compensation factors with employee production. He then considers factors that have changed in the 1970's to make a compensation plan based on productivity more attractive. The balance of the presentation is given over to a discussion of the essential premises on which the plan is based, an overview of the plan, and a procedural implementation of a plan from the time it is first presented to the board to the time when objectives are created and evaluated. The document concludes with a discussion of the management control of such a plan. (Author/DN)
