Choosing the Right Process for Teacher Evaluation.
Ballard, Leah M.; Gullat, David E.
American Secondary Education, v26 n3 p13-17 Mar 1998
If evaluation's purpose is improving teaching rather than prescribing teaching effectiveness, then supervisors must find ways to communicate that purpose and to motivate teachers to seek improvement. This article reviews relevant literature, focusing on summative and formative evaluation, philosophical concepts espoused by neo-traditionalists and neo-progressives, the supervision-evaluation relationship, and supervisory roles in education.
