Evaluation Competencies of the Classroom Teacher.
Strathe, Marlene I.
The results of a mailed questionnaire survey are presented showing the opinions of a sample of teachers concerning the importance to them of 41 competencies related to measurement and evaluation. Out of a sample of 100 elementary school teachers, 50 junior high school teachers, and 100 senior high school teachers, 58 percent responded to the questionnaire. Responses were made on a five point scale, ranging from 1 for unnecessary and unused skills to 5 for essential and frequently used skills. The results are presented in two tables. The first table shows the mean and standard deviation for each category of teachers separately for each item. The second table presents the same data for items grouped in eight categories. The category receiving the highest rating by elementary school teachers was labeled "communicating evaluation information--conducting effective conferences." The category receiving the lowest rating was labeled "statistical analysis and interpretation--summarizing and describing evaluation information." Reference is made to surveys which show that only a minority of teachers have had formal training in measurement and evaluation. (CTM)
