Teacher-Candidates' Overall Program Portfolio Scoring: Systematic, Comprehensive and Hierarchical Evaluative Measures of Excellence (TOPPS SCHEME).
Mushi, Selina L. P.
This document is a scoring guide that presents the Teacher-candidates' Overall Program Portfolio Scoring: Systematic, Comprehensive and Hierarchical Evaluative Measures of Excellence (TOPPS SCHEME) approach to scoring teacher candidates' program portfolios. The guide facilitates systematic, comprehensive, and hierarchical means of measuring and evaluating the overall performance excellence (knowledge, skills, and dispositions) of teacher candidates. The guide gives different elements of the portfolio different weights. Intra-rater and inter-rater reliability indices are used to indicate scorer agreement, and at least 95% scorer agreement is suggested. The scheme contains charts to evaluate portfolio elements, with summary computation and score interpretation pages to be completed when the rest of the scoring pages are finished. (SLD)
