Deever, R. Merwin; Berg, George E.
This report summarizes a doctoral dissertation that investigated the status of teacher evaluation practices in Arizona as of October 1974. Data were gathered through questionnaires mailed to the principal or chief administrator of all 774 public schools in Arizona. Respondents were asked to indicate the purpose, criteria, and frequency of teacher evaluation in their school, as well as the specific evaluation methods used. Analysis of the data showed that 78.9% of the responding schools conducted formal teacher evaluation; of those schools conducting formal evaluation, 73.5% did so for formally stated purposes, and 82.9% based their evaluation on written criteria. The most frequent purposes indicated for teacher evaluation were improvement of instruction (56.1%) and facilitation of administrative decisions (45.1%). The most common evaluation criteria was discipline or classroom control (54.9%). Teachers were informed of the results of their evaluation in 91.6% of the schools conducting formal evaluation.
