Teacher Evaluation: The Principal's Role. OSSC Bulletin Vol. 20, No. 3.
Weisenstein, Greg R.
The many issues confronting teacher evaluation can be consolidated into three general questions: (1) Who is responsible for evaluating teachers? (2) What evaluation instrument will be relevant and valid for the purposes intended? (3) What conditions are present when dealing with the human relation difficulties inherent in the evaluation process? The problems discussed represent general areas of dissonance in the field of teacher evaluation and are by no means inclusive of all concerns in this area. The purpose of the discussion is to introduce the reader to certain controversial issues and to specify how these issues affect the role of the principal. No attempt is made to provide "cookbook" answers to the issues raised, as none appear to exist. (Author/IRT)
