Teacher Competence: To Do What?
Orlosky, Donald E.
This paper treats the theoretical underpinnings of accountability, particularly as they relate to specifying competencies that are used to evaluate an individual teacher's effectiveness. Contingencies and factors that influence the selection of competencies are discussed. Stressed is the virtual impossibility of adequately preparing teachers to perform "competently" if the competencies are not properly delineated. In turn, it is stressed, unless accountability policies and accompanying procedures are brought under reasonable control in this way, we will not be able to honor the overriding intent of accountability--to hold a teacher responsible for pupils' learning.
