Teacher Observation: A Format for Systematic Formative Evaluation.
Fifer, Fred L.
This paper both reviews results of research related to teacher evaluation and then presents a suggested evaluation format to be used based on these research findings. The research reviewed falls into five general categories: format for evaluation, guidelines for evaluation, criteria for evaluation, problems with evaluation, and definitions of effectiveness as related to teaching. The proposed model for formative classroom evaluation is described as having six essentials for building a solid foundation for classroom instruction: physical arrangement of room, personal qualities, classroom management, teaching skills, communication skills, and additional data that affect classroom climate.
