Improving Instruction through Supervision: Developing Supervisory Support for Teachers. E.S.E.A. Title IV-C. Final Evaluation Report, 1980-1981.
District of Columbia Public Schools, Washington, DC. Div. of Quality Assurance.
This report presents results of the evaluation of a project designed to provide a support system for teachers in District of Columbia Schools. Under the project, teachers and administrators received training and practice in the clinical supervision process, which allowed them to help other teachers at the local level. The report is based on a survey of 39 schools, and includes a description of the background and objectives of the project, and a summary of intended and observed outcomes for each objective. Appendices include supporting data concerning peer interactions of teachers during the application of clinical supervision techniques and validity and reliability of the Film Observation Peer Supervision Instrument; a final evaluation of the teachers' training program by teachers and administrators; and a summary of comments and recommendations on attitude questionnaires. Analyses of the pre- and posttest scores and gains on the Peer Supervision Instrument, the Project-Designed Knowledge Test, and the Supervision/Administrator Test of the National Teacher Exam are also appended. The report concludes that objectives were met in the areas of teacher attendance, content, significant gain in knowledge and application of concepts, teacher attitudes, and teacher rating of course format and program effects.
