Administrator Perspectives of Ohio's Teacher Evaluation System: Implications for Educational Administration Programs in Higher Education
Williams, Nicole V.; Crates, Kathleen
Leadership and Research in Education, v2 n1 p25-38 2015
The purpose of this study was to elicit elementary and middle school administrators' perceptions of the Ohio Teacher Evaluation System (OTES). The researchers created a questionnaire to learn administrators' experiences with and attitudes, opinions, beliefs, and knowledge of OTES thus far. The questionnaire consisted of twenty-five Likert-based questions with four open-ended response questions. The participants included 437 elementary and/or middle school administrators who voluntarily chose to respond to the questionnaire distributed via email to all public school K-12 administrators in the state of Ohio. Based on the analysis of the data, the researchers learned that more than half of administrators have participated in the OTES and they were relatively confident in their ability to implement the OTES. The administrators believe that their teachers are confident in their ability to implement the OTES. However, the administrators reported high levels of skepticism that the OTES will improve teaching and learning for their students.
