Teacher Evaluation: Relevant Concepts and Related Procedures.
Carlson, Robert V.; Park, Richard
The present purposes of teacher evaluation commonly include: (1) professional growth for improvement of instruction; (2) clarifying goals and objectives; (3) measuring progress toward those goals; (4) clarifying inservice needs; (5) judging the contribution of the teacher to pupil progress; (6) determining salary; and (7) determining employment status. Three conceptual frameworks of teacher evaluation are discussed: appraisal based on mutually derived objectives; appraisal based on student learnings; and appraisal based on teacher behavior. The question is which approach or combination of approaches should be used. Several factors are discussed which must be considered in designing a "new" teacher evaluation system: baseline assessment; definition of a decision-making process; clarification of purposes of the evaluation system; identification of alternative approaches; identification of type of data needed; information sources; data collection methods; management structures; selection of plausible design features. Various implementation stages for a teacher evaluation system are outlined, and a model for evaluating the new evaluation system is presented. (JMF)
