Demystifying Teacher Evaluation: The Multiple-Strategies Model Used as an Assessment Device.
Million, Steven K.
A system of evaluation which generates copious information with minimal demands on teachers and administrators can improve the quality of teacher assessment while lowering the tensions associated with the process. Multiple-Strategies Model for Effective Teaching is made up of 10 component parts. Each component represents an element in a framework upon which effective instruction can be built. Based on teaching effectiveness research and classroom practice, the model has proven effective in training and retraining teachers and is now proving highly useful as an inservice teacher evaluation device. Because the model prescribes several specific elements such as objectives, justification, and evaluation, teachers can retain the plans in which these elements are designated as evidence that they are using the preferred system on a regular basis. When the model is used as a standard, the assessor can suggest that a teacher focus greater attention on a particular area. When teachers meet or exceed the standard, they can be rewarded appropriately; if they fail to reach the standard, they can be directed toward specific improvement based on the model. The components covered in the model are: (1) classroom climate; (2) opening lessons; (3) instructional objectives; (4) justification of content; (5) selection of content; (6) teaching strategies; (7) review of material; (8) lesson evaluation; (9) student achievement evaluation; and (10) classroom management.
