Teacher Self-Assessment via Videotaped Minilessons in the Marin County Regional Occupational Program.
Faiola, Theodora
The Marin County (California) Regional Occupational Program (Marin ROP) was charged with increasing the vocational education opportunities for youth and adults so that they may acquire occupational skills. While the Marin ROP was jointly sponsored by three secondary school districts and a two-campus community college, the ROP was administered by the Marin County Superintendent of Schools. As a component of the Marin ROP, a practicum was designed to teach eighteen vocational teachers how to use video equipment in order to: (1) increase the diversity of teaching styles, (2) sharpen self-assessment skills, and (3) use the equipment as a teaching tool. Sixteen teachers produced videotaped lessons and fifteen teachers chose to incorporate the videotaped lessons in their annual teaching evaluations. The author concluded that while videotaped lessons are a valid tool for increasing teachers' self-assessment awareness and capabilities, self-assessment as a stated objective for producing videotaped lessons created high degrees of teacher apprehension. Therefore, it was speculated that if teachers simply learned how to operate the equipment as a teaching tool and produced lessons for classroom use, self-assessment would automatically occur because teachers would see themselves teaching and begin to change.
