Can Teacher Evaluation Improve Teaching?
Principal Leadership, v13 n7 p24-29 Mar 2013
The answer to the question, Can evaluation improve teaching? is a qualified yes. Teacher evaluation has changed and the role of the principal has changed as well; the focus now is on evidence, not merely good judgment. With the right tools, systems, and support, it should be possible to help improve teaching performance and student learning outcomes, not just measure them. Principals play an essential role in the success of that vision.
