Measuring Teacher Effectiveness in Physical Education
Rink, Judith E.
Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, v84 n4 p407-418 2013
This article summarizes the research base on teacher effectiveness in physical education from a historical perspective and explores the implications of the recent emphasis on student performance and teacher observation systems to evaluate teachers for physical education. The problems and the potential positive effects of using student performance scores as well as establishing a comprehensive evaluation program are explored with supportive evidence that some level of accountability is necessary in our field to make significant change.
