Evaluation: A Summary of NESDEC's Annual School Boards Conference.
Clarke, Stephen J.
At the 1974 conference of the New England School Development Council, six papers were presented. Marvin Powell outlined a new form of student evaluation which can give the teacher a much more comprehensive picture of student performance and potential, and described his service organization, the Foundation for Individualized Evaluation and Research, Inc. Girard Hottleman, in a discussion of teacher evaluation, argued that evaluation should fit the system and be a human process that rests comfortably on the teacher and is explainable and functional in promoting both teacher and student goals. William Ellena described the mutual evaluation carried on in his school system between the Superintendent of Schools and the School Board. Philip Saif discussed the planning necessary for teacher evaluation. Leon Pierce explained Clinical Supervision, a concrete program for the evaluation of instruction. William Doub and Charles Doyle described Project TAPE-IT, and evaluation technique involving self-evaluation by the teacher through the use of videotaping. In addition to a summary of the conference sessions, three documents are included which address the goals of the school system, the performance evaluation of the superintendent, and the appraisal of school board effectiveness.
