An Item Analysis of Teacher Evaluation Forms as a Mandate of Legislative Accountability.
Fox, Charles D.; Tubb, Gary W.
Before teacher evaluation forms can have any significance for educational research their validity and reliability must be established. This study concerns itself with defining the suitability of the criteria-establishing items that may be contained on teacher evaluations. The areas of inquiry are: the rater (evaluator) difficulty level of each item; the extent to which each rater discriminates between good and poor items; and the establishment of internal and external consistency in rating. A sampling of five administrators from a public school system in Louisiana brought variable results regarding the consistency levels in these areas. The results are included in statistical form in the appendixes to the report. (LH)
