Evaluation of Teacher Performance.
Parsons, Llewellyn
This paper on the supervision and evaluation of teachers as professional personnel begins by delineating the characteristics and expectations of professionals, and then explains how they are socialized into their roles, the reasons why they should be supervised, the blocks and hindrances to supervision and evaluation, and how the blocks may be removed. The paper outlines the components of supervision and evaluation, the results approach, the post-appraisal conference, and the supervisory styles and behaviors used in helping personnel with professional growth. The "personal and institutional growth" style of supervision and evaluation is emphasized. According to proponents of this style, after job content and objectives have been established, the supervisor's chief duties include (1) helping professionals make the widest use of their talents and ideas; (2) encouraging professionals to question accepted practices and routines; (3) helping identify organizational goals and clients' needs; (4) helping professionals understand the clients' environment; and (5) clarifying and sharpening the professionals' thinking about problems.
