The Appraisal of Teaching: Concepts and Process. Final Report.
Borich, Gary D.
This volume is designed to serve as a sourcebook of conceptual frameworks and selected readings whose content is prerequisite to conducting appraisals of teaching. Primarily, its contents are intended to serve as a graduate level reader to be used in the context of college classrooms, seminars and in-service workshops or wherever opportunities exist to further discuss and explore the issues and concepts which are contained within it. The volume begins with five introductory chapters which set the stage for the selections which follow by discussing fundamental concepts and providing a conceptual framework with which to view each segment of the appraisal process to be discussed. Thus, this volume is divided into two parts: introductory chapters describing fundamental concepts and conceptual frameworks (Part I) and selected readings (Part II) chosen to illustrate or expand the concepts and frameworks introduced in Part I. These initial chapters together with the readings provide a reasonably representative sample of the teacher appraisal concepts which have been discussed to date at national conferences and symposia and in the popular and professional literature. The five topics into which this volume is organized are: defining teacher competencies; measuring teacher performance; building teacher appraisal systems; using teacher appraisal techniques and procedures; and examining the validity of the appraisal process.
