School Evaluation in Russia: A Cooperative Venture To Establish World Class Standards.
Steadman, David G.
Of concern to private and public schools in Russia is the evaluation of teachers and schools. The use of voluntary, nongovernmental peer evaluation using extant Western accreditation processes is one choice that is being used in several public and private schools in Russia. This system of peer evaluation and friendly criticism contrasts markedly with the traditional monolithic and generally negative evaluation in Russia. Economic factors hamper the adoption of Western evaluation methods, but they are being embraced to an increasing degree. The new format of school evaluation will result in an exchange of ideas related to performance expectations that has never existed before. Evaluators must get beyond the idea that "made in the U.S." is the standard for the whole world. The move to real "world class" standards receives an important boost from the evaluation exchange that is taking place in Russia today. (Contains 2 references.) (SLD)
