Evaluation of First Year Teachers' Ability To Assess Their Lesson Objectives.
Sultana, Qaisar
This study examined first-year teachers' ability to assess their students. The researcher collected lesson plans submitted by each of the Kentucky New Teacher Internship Program (K-TIP) interns in one county during 1996-97 and 1997-98. The lesson plans came from 32 elementary, 11 middle, and 7 high school K-TIP interns. The researcher copied lesson objectives and assessments as written by the teachers, using the information to prepare a research instrument for data collection. The research instrument contained 60 items, with both lesson objectives and assessment methods, as given by the K-TIP interns in their lesson plans. Trained K-TIP teachers (both regular and special education) were asked to participate in the study. The study examined the interns' ability to appropriately assess their students' performance on the lesson objectives. Participants completed the research instrument. Data analysis indicated that 23-68 percent of the assessment plans, written by the first-year teachers, were appropriate for their lesson objectives. Raters representing regular education considered 47-68 percent of the lesson objectives to have appropriate assessment plans. Raters representing special education ranked 23-68 percent of the assessment plans to be appropriate. The results show that from 1/3-3/4 of first-year teachers do not assess their instructional objectives appropriately. The research instrument is included in a table. (SM)
