Van Den Ouweland, Loth; Vanhoof, Jan; Van den Bossche, Piet – Educational Assessment, Evaluation and Accountability, 2019
Research indicates that underperforming teachers have a profound impact on students and on principals who struggle to deal with the underperformance. However, the impact on, and responses of, other teachers (i.e. co-workers) is rarely studied, in spite of the importance of teacher collaboration in contemporary education. Therefore, we interviewed…

Liu, Shuangshuang; Bell, Courtney A.; Jones, Nathan D.; McCaffrey, Daniel F. – Educational Assessment, Evaluation and Accountability, 2019
Researchers and practitioners sometimes presume that using a previously "validated" instrument will produce "valid" scores; however, contemporary views of validity suggest that there are many reasons this assumption can be faulty. In order to demonstrate just some of the problems with this view, and to support comparisons of…

Lei, Xiaoxuan; Li, Hongli; Leroux, Audrey J. – Educational Assessment, Evaluation and Accountability, 2018
Classroom observations have been increasingly used for teacher evaluations, and it is important to examine the measurement quality and the use of observation ratings. When a teacher is observed in multiple classrooms, his or her observation ratings may vary across classrooms. In that case, using ratings from one classroom per teacher may not be…

Based on survey methods (n = 155) and interviews with a sample of secondary school teachers (n = 9) in a large urban district in the USA, we explored general trends and…

Gaertner, Holger; Brunner, Martin – Educational Assessment, Evaluation and Accountability, 2018
In many countries, students are asked about their perceptions of teaching in order to make decisions about the further development of teaching practices on the basis of this feedback. The stability of this measurement of teaching quality is a prerequisite for the ability to generalize the results to other teaching situations. The present study…

The concept of data-informed decision making (DIDM), a term used interchangeably with data-driven decision making (DDDM) and data-based decision making (DBDM), is relatively new to Irish education and the school planning process. This research sought to clarify what data principals use and how they use that information for school improvement…

This study examines the association between two measures of teaching effectiveness--a student survey measure and a classroom observation measure--to determine whether their correlation depends on the study design. The sample includes 160 classroom observations of 56 teachers across 15 classes, in which students also rated the teachers with a…
