Evaluating Evaluation: Using Teacher Surveys to Strengthen Implementation
Ross Wiener. 2013. The Aspen Institute.
Public education is focused intensively on designing and implementing meaningful teacher evaluations. To convert evaluation information into more effective teaching, teachers, principals, and system leaders need to embrace a culture of ongoing, two-way feedback and a commitment to continuous improvement. Evaluating Evaluations explains how teacher surveys can advance this work by engaging teachers, generating information on what’s working and what’s not, and supporting reciprocal accountability in education improvement efforts.
