An Introduction to the Teacher Performance Assessment Instruments: Their Uses and Limitations.
Johnson, Charles E.; And Others
The Teacher Performance Assessment Instruments (TPAI) were designed to determine (for certification purposes) how well teachers can demonstrate certain minimum teaching skills considered essential to effective teaching. An analysis of the five instruments which compose the TPAI is presented. The topics of the five instruments are: teaching plans and materials, the classroom procedures, interpersonal skills, professional standards, and pupils' perceptions of teacher's classroom performance. A description is given of how each instrument is used for teacher evaluation and a discussion on their reliability and limitations is included as well as applications of the instruments for inservice professional development.
