The Teacher Quality Index: A Protocol for Teacher Selection
Stronge, James H.; Hindman, Jennifer L.
Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development
Turn your teacher hiring process into a research-based protocol that is more apt to select teachers who will increase student achievement. Using the teacher quality indicators from the ASCD best-selling book "Qualities of Effective Teachers, 2nd Edition," the authors take the guesswork out of teacher hiring with a systematic structure and steps for conducting interviews at district and school levels. Here is the easiest, most reliable way to make sure your hiring process has the components it needs to pick top teachers: (1) Interview protocols based on the research on effective teaching and the research on effective interviewing; (2) Legally permissible, job-related interview questions that are aligned to the qualities of effective teaching; (3) Interview strategies that are drawn from concepts found in applied psychology; and (4) Field-tested rubrics for evaluating potential new hires based on their interview responses. All the forms and scoring rubrics you need for screening teacher candidates and conducting building-based interviews are included on an accompanying CD-ROM.
