A Literature Search as a Data Source for the Development of a Student Teacher Evaluation System and the Identification of One Hundred Ninety-Nine Evaluation Criteria, 1981-82. Research Report No. 83-2.
Foster, Clifford D.; Calder, James
A research project was designed to produce a new system for evaluating student teachers at the University of Washington. A literature search provided the basis for a conceptual framework for the development of an evaluation instrument. Conclusions derived from the literature were: (1) Rationales for teacher evaluation include subjective-humanistic, behavioral, and eclectic ideologies; (2) The process, product, and naturalistic approaches to evaluation were the most visible in the literature sampled; (3) Literature reviews, expert opinion, and ethnographic study were used to validate evaluation criteria; and (4) The design of an evaluation instrument should be determined with assurance of agreement among the rationale, approach, and criteria. A description is given of the phases of the study and the method of determining an evaluation system based on an analysis of documents found in the literature search. A list of 199 evaluation criteria generated by the study is appended, as well as the performance based evaluation instrument and lists of the resources and references used in the study. (JD)
