Research Questions for the Development of Components of an Emerging Career Ladder Program Model.
Packard, Richard D.
The Northern Arizona University Career Ladder Research and Evaluation Project for teachers implements a procedure for rewarding teachers based on performance levels rather than on years of teaching experience and college credits. Research data is collected each spring, analyzed and fed back to the districts for improvement of key program components. This document presents a "working list" of representative areas of the pilot-test program. Questions are listed under the following areas: (1) research and evaluation; (2) organizational climate; (3) teacher variables; (4) program funding; and (5) attitudes toward change. A list is also provided of review questions regarding career ladder program evaluation which includes questions on: (1) legislative and policy issues; (2) test of assumptions about career ladder programs; (3) analysis of development and change factors; (4) study of career ladder designs; and (5) administration and finance.
