Measuring thinking skills in the classroom by Richard J Stiggins( Book )

9 editions published between 1985 and 1988 in English and held by 786 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Designed to contribute to the growing effort to teach critical thinking skills, this guide provides teachers with (1) a simple, usable set of definitions for recall, analysis, comparison, inference, and evaluation; (2) brief explanations of three common forms of classroom assessment (oral questioning during instruction, paper and pencil objective test items, and performance assessment); and (3) a planning strategy for crossing levels of thinking skills with forms of classroom assessment in a way that uses assessment to promote student skill in higher level cognitive operations. For purposes of illustration, the guide includes a range of examples of assessments for all grade levels covering concepts taught in science, social studies, and language arts (composition and literature). The guide also provides space for users to fill in examples relevant to their particular subject areas. (Hod)
Teacher evaluation : five keys to growth by Daniel Linden Duke( Book )

9 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 665 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This guide, written for teachers and administrators wishing to introduce evaluation systems that promote continued teacher growth and enhance school effectiveness, suggests that meaningful change requires a clear understanding of what is already in operation, substantial skill development, and adequate resources for the duration of the change cycle. Rather than prescribing a single route to success, the guide offers examples of different evaluation experiences, describes possible evaluation courses, and, in separate chapters, offers five keys to effective evaluation: teachers, evaluators, performance data, feedback, and context. A subsequent chapter examines the important attributes of these keys in more detail. The guide concludes by offering two scenarios for success and a discussion on evaluating existing evaluation procedures, improving the teacher evaluation environment, and upgrading evaluation skills. An appendix includes a teacher evaluation experience questionnaire and a questionnaire for evaluators' self-examination. (Iw)

Evaluating students by classroom observation : watching students grow by Richard J Stiggins( Book )

10 editions published between 1984 and 1986 in English and held by 358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book offers an overview of performance assessment, "the observation and subjective rating of student behavior and products" as a method for evaluating "day-to-day student learning." Stiggins divides performance assessment into reasons for the assessment, the task that requires performance, the behaviors or product evaluated, and the rating or method used to judge the student's performance. A how-to book rather than a description of instruments available to teachers, it provides ways to design a performance test, giving options, helpful hints, guidelines, and a checklist for quality control. An appendix rounds out this brief, 32-page booklet which should give confidence to classroom teachers interested in designing their own performance assessments

Teacher evaluation : five keys to growth : a training program for effective evaluation by Mary T Rose( Book )

2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This manual describes a training program for teacher evaluation. The purpose of the program is to provide educators who evaluate classroom instruction with the tools that result in professional growth for the teachers and improvement of classroom instruction. Joint participation by teachers and administrators is encouraged in all phases of the evaluation process. The training program has five modules. The first module reviews the research on teacher evaluation, addresses the concept of common vision, presents a model of a growth-oriented evaluation system, and provides training in conducting a planning conference. The second module informs participants of the kinds of classroom behavior that can be recorded through observation, familiarizes them with the use of common observation tools, and demonstrates the utility of teacher-made observation tools. The third module presents methods for analyzing and interpreting descriptive data and provides procedures for a mutually productive postconference leading to meaningful goal setting. The fourth module presents means of measuring instructional effectiveness: student assessment, teaching artifacts, student evaluations, and self-assessment. The fifth module includes criteria for productive goals, and ideas for motivating teachers and providing resources. The modules follow a sequential procedure and include all back-up materials. The format for each module is: module overview, training agenda, activity instruction sheets, participant handouts, and hard-copy transparencies. A separate "Teacher Education Profile (tep) User's Guide," dated December 1989, with related and non-duplicative content, has been appended. (Jd)
