Teacher Evaluation. The Best of ERIC on Educational Management, Number 99.
ERIC Clearinghouse on Educational Management, Eugene, OR.
The first 2 of the 11 publications reviewed in this annotated bibliography recommend the involvement of teachers in the evaluation of their colleagues. Subsequent reports include the following points: (1) those who are likely to benefit from an assessment are the competent instructors who know their subject well; (2) a discrepancy exists between state-of-the-art and actual teacher evaluation practices in the nation's 100 largest school districts; (3) effective teacher evaluation entails qualitative judgments; and (4) the two common flaws in teacher evaluation instruments are instructional undervaluing and vagueness. Additional publications reviewed describe evaluation strategies that incorporate assessment center exercises and extensive field observation, feature six diverse models aimed at evaluating teachers' ability to think and improve, propose a single system to encompass both formative and summative evaluations, and provide an overview of recent research on and discussion of teacher evaluation.
