Applying the APA/AERA/NCME "Standards": Evidence for the Validity and Reliability of Three Statewide Teaching Assessment Instruments.
Rothenberg, Lori; Hessling, Peter A.
The statewide teaching performance assessment instruments being used in Georgia, North Carolina, and Florida were examined. Forty-one reliability and validity studies regarding the instruments in use in each state were collected from state departments and universities. Georgia uses the Georgia Teacher Performance Assessment Instrument. North Carolina uses the Teacher Performance Appraisal Instrument. Florida uses the Florida Performance Measurement System. The 41 studies were critiqued using the "Standards for Educational and Psychological Tests" of the American Psychological Association (APA), American Association for Educational Research (AERA), and the National Council on Measurement in Education (NCME). The focus was on evaluating the evidence found for the primary standards described in the "Standards." Results indicate that all three states needed further evidence of construct validity, criterion-related validity, and reliability when the instruments were used in different contexts. A 47-item list of references is included. Three appendices provide summaries of the competencies and functions measured by each instrument. (SLD)
