Teacher Evaluation Systems: Ten Evaluation Tools from Rural Maine
Date of Award
Master of Education (MEd)
After reviewing the literature on what makes a teacher evaluation system effective, ten evaluation tools from rural, Maine schools were analyzed. Most of those tools fell short in the areas of fostering professional development, improving teacher performance, and providing a clear picture of what happens in the classroom on a regular basis. Teachers were also asked to complete a survey about their current evaluation system. Most teachers felt that their current system was ineffective (for various reasons), and had their own suggestions for improvement.
