Assessing the Classroom Performance of Beginning Teachers: Educators' Appraisal of Proposed Evaluation Criteria. The Praxis Series: Professional Assessments for Beginning Teachers(TM).
Powers, Donald E.
Surveys were conducted of two multi-state samples of educators, who provided ratings of the importance of two preliminary versions of the classroom performance assessment criteria being developed for The Praxis Series: Professional Assessments for Beginning Teachers(TM). One sample, with 114 respondents, was chosen primarily on the basis of its familiarity with basic academic skills needed by beginning teachers. The other (131 replies) was chosen primarily on the basis of teachers' certification in particular subject fields. There was considerable agreement about the importance of criteria across several classifications of educators according to ethnicity, instructional level, years of teaching experience, subject area, and orientation to teaching. Nine tables present survey findings. (Contains 10 references.) (Author/SLD)
