Planning for an Evaluation of Teaching Performance. Volume I. A Manual of Guidelines.
Yuzdepski, I., Comp.; Elliott, L., Comp.
This manual on teacher evaluation is limited to selected aspects of instruction that are evident in classrooms, including teaching behaviors, pupil perceptions about instruction, classroom transactions involving pupils and teachers, and evidence of short- and long-term planning. The focus is upon those aspects of instruction that research has shown to be consistently related to effective teaching. The first chapter offers an overview of the manual. Chatper 2 discusses the purposes of evaluation in detail and the various types of evaluation, including observation, self-assessment, and student perceptions. The third chapter provides an outline of planning activities required for the development or revision of a district's policy and guidelines and procedures for evaluating teaching performance. In the fourth chapter, 19 suggested criteria for use in evaluating teaching performance are presented. Chapter 5 discusses the selection of instruments for evaluation proceedings, and the sixth chapter discusses post-observation activities. A substantial reference list of writings on teacher effectiveness and evaluation procedures is provided, as well as a description of the videotapes used in this program. (JD)
