Teacher Self-Assessment: A Means for Improving Classroom Instruction. Analysis and Action Series.
Bailey, Gerald D.
Teacher self-assessment is defined as "the process of self examination for the purpose of instructional self-improvement". Seven steps to teacher self-assessment, a series of interlocking strategies, are intended to help both experienced and beginning teachers identify and improve classroom teaching behavior. Although they represent a total approach to instructional improvement, the seven steps can also serve as individual strategies. They are as follows: (1) gaining a philosophic overview; (2) using media; (3) identifying basic teaching behaviors of set and closure; (4) identifying verbal cues in self assessment; (5) identifying nonverbal cues; (6) planning instructional behaviors with means-referenced objectives; and (7) using observation forms. The origins of teacher self-assessment, definitions of the concept, and research on the topic are also discussed. A bibliography based on the seven steps is provided. (JD)
