The Personnel Evaluation Standards: How To Assess Systems for Evaluating Educators.
Stufflebeam, Daniel L.
Evaluation of personnel is an essential means of ensuring quality in education. However, evaluations of teachers and administrators have often been divisive and counterproductive. This book is the product of a collaborative effort by 14 professional associations as a guide for assessing or developing systems for evaluating education personnel at all levels. It presents and elaborates 21 standards. Each standard provides a summary description of the principle involved, a discussion of its key concepts and importance, guidelines for carrying it out, common mistakes to be avoided, and one or more illustrations of how the standard applies in particular evaluative situations. The 21 standards are divided into 4 general categories: propriety, utility, feasibility, and accuracy. After an introduction, part 1 is a straightforward presentation of the 21 standards. Part 2 presents and illustrates an approach for applying the standards. Appendixes describe the development of the standards; the steps and forms for citing them; a listing of the participants in the development of the standards; a glossary of relevant terms; the bibliography; indexes to the roles, institutions, purposes, and personnel actions addressed in the illustrative cases; and a subject matter index.
