National Project III. Elevating the Importance of Instruction. Final Written Report.
King, David J.
This document is the written component of the final report of the SUNY-Oswego portion of a national education project concerned with the improvement of instruction and the evaluation of college teachers. A videotape on faculty evaluation is also considered by the author to be an integral part of the total report. The written report is divided into five main sections: (1) a statistical examination of the results obtained from a teacher rating scale designed and implemented by the report's author; (2) a chronicle of the expansion of Oswego's faculty evaluation procedures, particularly within the psychology department; (3) discussion of a theoretical orientation scale as it applies to teaching; (4) suggested techniques to improve teaching performance; and (5) a brief treatment of the accompanying videotape presentation. The majority of the document is given over to tables, statistics, and graphs. (LH)
