Arizona Lesson Observation and Evaluation (ALOE): Design Test Edition, 1990.
Fargo, J. Steven; And Others
The Arizona Lesson Observation and Evaluation (ALOE) system of evaluating teaching is presented. ALOE was developed from Arizona adaptations of the Georgia Teacher Performance Assessment Instruments and, with G. Taylor's "Functional Elements Analysis of Teaching Skills" (FEATS), forms an integrated observation package which allows teaching to be examined in three dimensions: (1) a categorical perspective; (2) a clustered-repertoire context perspective; and (3) a skill level. The three dimensions are addressed in three contexts with the following different instrument editions for individuals observing teaching from specific perspectives: Methods Edition; Supervisor Edition; and Cooperating Teacher Edition. These three manuals are abbreviated editions intended for regular use; in this document they are provided in conjunction with the ALOE Reference Edition, containing expanded explanations of all the skills and concepts covered in the entire evaluation system; and a Conference Skills Instrument, which focuses observation on personal conferences. The present document also contains the reference and work editions of the Conference Skills Instrument. Record sheets for the observations are included, and a record sheet for recording formal tests not related to instruction is provided. (SLD)
