Inside the Peer Review Process: How Academics Review a Colleague's Teaching Portfolio.
Quinlan, Kathleen M.
Teaching and Teacher Education, v18 n8 p1035-49 Nov 2002
This think-aloud study examined the process seven academics used in reasoning through a colleague's biochemistry course portfolio. Interview data indicated that participants used a normative, case-based reasoning approach, comparing reviewees' practices to their own experiences, their colleagues, and prototypical or traditional practices. They considered contextual factors and pre-existing knowledge of the teacher and context, justifying final decisions based on appropriateness and achievement of educational goals. (SM)
