Assessment of Teacher Performance: What Is Involved? What Is the Cost?
Ward, Beatrice A.
Questions are raised regarding the purposes of teacher assessment, the teacher performance to be assessed, and the level of training and skill individuals who do the assessing must have. In each question area, several courses of action are presented. Different cost levels are associated with each option. It is suggested that the task for the individual, or agency, responsible for assessing teacher performance is to determine which options within each decision area best meet the policy-making and training needs of that particular program. Central to this decision is the quantity and quality of data required given the purposes for which the findings will be used. (JD)
