The Use of Classroom Observation Techniques in the Evaluation of Educational Programs. TM Report 49.
Brown, Bob Burton; Webb, Jeaninne N.
Systematic observations of classroom behavior of both teachers and pupils are effective measures of process in education. Until a few years ago, the classroom process--what actually does and does not happen as a result of instituting a new program--went unmeasured for want of tools and techniques to do that job. In this article, examples of observational systems are provided as well as suggestions for tailor-making your own observation items for the evaluation of highly unique programs. (Author/RC)
