Diversity of Responses among Ten Arizona Pilot Test District Career Ladder Plans.
Packard, Richard D.; Fargo, Steve
Northern Arizona University's Arizona Career Ladder Research & 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 shows percentages of agreement and disagreement on specific career ladder concepts, and weighted scores for high and low district rankings. Survey results from 10 districts on the following concepts are displayed in tables: (1) general career ladder concepts; (2) staff development and training concepts; (3) teacher evaluation system concepts; (4) peer evaluation concepts; (5) career ladder placement concepts; and (6) organizational climate survey. An outline of similarities and diversities in achieving performance targets and conditions of pilot test career ladder programs in Arizona is included. (JD)
