School Evaluation for the Catholic Elementary School: An Overview.
Reck, Carleen; Coreil, Judith
This booklet examines the need for school evaluation in the Catholic elementary school, the basic steps in the evaluation procedure, relevant evaluation criteria, and various evaluation instruments. The document suggests that regular school evaluation is needed to facilitate improvement, to provide a means of accountability, to foster community involvement, and to build public relations. To evaluate a school, educators must decide when to evaluate, determine the scope of the evaluation, review applicable criteria, select an appropriate instrument, identify persons to be involved, plan communication, complete the self-study process, verify the self-study report, design and implement the improvement plan, and review progress. Educators should also remember that evaluation is a continuing process. Evaluative criteria to be considered are personnel, the instructional program, religious formation, community, social ministries, and worship. The final sections of the booklet consider evaluation instruments developed by the National Catholic Educational Association and by other Catholic elementary schools in the United States. A glossary of terms is provided. (PB)
