Developing a Customized Teaching Assessment Software Instrument.
Stanbrough, Mark; Stinson, Bill
The goal of this project was to develop customized teaching analysis software that would accurately measure recorded teaching behaviors and communicate useful results quickly to the observed teacher with the goal of improving teacher performance. A computer software program, "The Evaluator," was developed that uses a Windows interface programmed in Visual Basic language. It was designed to effectively measure time on task behaviors as well as frequency of teacher related behaviors. "The Evaluator" allows collection of data for any observable behavior that can be timed, counted, or commented on. The opening format has four sections (evaluation forms, online evaluation, evaluation data, reports), each containing a help portion to assist in performing the functions of that section. The program is designed to print reports, charts, and graphs for immediate feedback. Evaluators using this program are able to use their time more efficiently, primarily after the evaluation is complete, for counseling the individuals. (AEF)
