An Analysis of the Process of Teacher Evaluation in the Community College.
Menzie, John Carroll
An analysis of teacher evaluation as practiced during 1971-1972 and 1972-1973 in community colleges throughout the United States is presented. To identify the concepts and outcomes of teacher evaluation a survey was made of current literature, two questionnaires were sent to 226 community colleges, and 67 interviews were conducted. There are essentially three methods used to evaluate teachers in community colleges: determining teacher characteristics, assessing teacher performance, and measuring student outcomes. The principal claims made for evaluation are that it: (1) improves instruction, (2) provides information for decisions on retention and dismissal, (3) is a threat to academic freedom, (4) affects faculty morale, and (5) would eliminate incompetent teachers from the college staff. The findings from the questionnaires showed that about three-fourths of all community colleges in the nation had a formal evaluation program. Findings from the interviews are given. (Author/CK)
