Perceptions of Secondary School Professional Personnel in Relation to Teacher Training in Pupil Evaluation Procedures.
Goehring, Harvey J., Jr.
Over 240 secondary school principals, guidance counselors, and teachers were interviewed to determine the relative degree of emphasis that should be placed on various topical areas in evaluation during the preservice training of teachers. The specific topical areas included writing behavioral objectives, developing objective tests, developing essay tests, conducting an item analysis, developing checklists and rating scales, using descriptive statistics, interpreting basic statistical terms, estimating the reliability and validity of their own tests, identifying pupil learning problems, evaluating pupil personal-social adjustment in the classroom, grading, communicating with parents, and selecting, administering, scoring, and interpreting standardized achievement tests. The results of the survey indicated that all of these topical areas should be included in preservice teacher training, with particular emphasis on constructing objective tests, identifying pupil learning problems, evaluating pupil personal-social adjustment, grading, and communicating with parents.
