School Improvement Model Teacher Performance Criteria with Response Modes and Standards. A Report.
Blackmer, Dianne; And Others
Teacher performance areas, criteria for evaluating them, and response modes (checklists for rating teacher performance) are supplied in this document, a prototype developed for the School Improvement Model (SIM) project. Teacher performance areas selected for evaluation include productive teaching techniques; organized, structured class management; provision of student intellectual stimulation; maintenance of positive interpersonal relations; and desirable job-related behavior. Under each performance area, suggested criteria for evaluation are listed. For example, under productive teaching techniques, criteria include communication ability, ability to motivate students, and ability to utilize appropriate teaching techniques. Next to each criterion is a "response mode" consisting of a checklist displaying a continuum of levels of performance ranging from the lowest level (behavior not observed), to a standard level of performance, to one level above standard. A preceding companion document (Publication 81-1) lists performance areas and criteria actually selected by the five school districts participating in the SIM project, as well as specific descriptors of behavior satisfying each criterion, but lacks the response modes supplied here.
