Systems Approach to Evaluation.
Landrith, Harold E.
An effective personnel evaluation system should contain ten components: (1) an introduction including the selection and composition of the committee that develops the program and the procedures used in its development; (2) a philosophy of evaluation based upon an assessment of the teaching environment of the district; (3) a listing of the purposes of the evaluation and the goals these purposes purport to accomplish; (4) a scope--the personnel to be evaluated, the evaluators, length of the evaluation session, and frequency of evaluations; (5) criteria for assessing competencies including what is to be considered in the evaluation; (6) a schedule including a timetable indicating dates for orientation pre-conference, formal evaluation, post-conference, and appeal; (7) procedures for appeal including how the appeals committee is to be determined and the procedures for appealing the results of an evaluation; (8) administration--retention, disposition, and security of the completed evaluations, responsibilities of the evaluators, and alternate methods of evaluation if available; (9) the evaluation instrument-- an explanation of the rating scale and each item on the evaluation instrument, a copy of the instrument, and provisions for indicating both strengths and weaknesses of the evaluatee; and (10) in-service and follow-up--suggested ways of improving weaknesses, a timetable for reevaluation, and criteria used in the reevaluation. Each of these components is described and detailed in a flow-chart; and a sample schedule and case study are included along with various evaluation forms. (MM)
