The following is taken from "Peer Review of Teaching" by Nancy Van Note Chism, pp. 3-9. I believe it captures the essence of our work in the 2nd semester.

"For evaluation to be fair, valid and reliable, multiple sources of data must be engaged, multiple methods must be used to gather data, and data must be gathered over multiple points in time." The evaluation process should involve multiple stakeholders in addition to the building administrator, including: Teachers (who are being evaluated), Colleagues, Students and Parents.


There are two levels of evaluation:

Formative evaluations are informal, on-ongoing, wide-ranging, and driven largely by the individual teacher. This reflective practice is the basis of effective teaching throughout a person's career.

Summative evaluations are formal, personnel decisions, that should also provide comparative information to measure the quality of teaching with respect to one's peers. This is the purview of building and district administrators.

Our goal is to create a coherent system of formative evaluation that will dovetail with, and provide more valid, fair and reliable feedback for, summative evaluations by administrators.
