Effective Schooling Practices and Teacher Evaluation: Beyond Ceremonial Congratulations. Project Leadership Presenter's Guide.
Pitner, Nancy J.
As part of the Research-Based Training for School Administrators Project at the University of Oregon, this scripted material was prepared for use by school administrators giving presentations in Project Leadership workshops. Project Leadership uses networking and administrator-led workshops to disseminate research results and state-of-the-art information to other school administrators. The material in this document covers teacher evaluation and school effectiveness and includes the script itself (including suggestions for workshop activities), masters for the presentations's 28 transparencies, worksheets and handouts for participants, a bibliography, and suggested further readings. The first of the script's four sections describes evaluation objectives, reviews research findings about evaluation and about school and teacher effectiveness, and discusses types of evaluation and the inadequacy of evaluations that are only "ceremonial congratulations." The second section examines the evaluation process, including allocating tasks, setting criteria, sampling, and appraising. Factors affecting evaluation, such as task characteristics and organizational arrangements, are analyzed in section 3, while section 4 considers the nature of effective schools and the characteristics of effective classrooms and effective teachers. The final section briefly suggests a review of the workshop. (Author/RW)
