Evaluating teachers : with lessons from Georgia's Performance-based certification program by Doris L Ross( Book )

4 editions published between 1985 and 1988 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An overview of the reasons for and basic elements of teacher evaluation programs, and a deeper look at one state's program in particular, are presented in this booklet. The first chapter discusses why teacher evaluations are useful, what processes for evaluation can be followed, how state and local policymakers can enhance the usefulness of teacher evaluation, and why evaluation programs must be continuously updated. Chapter 2 briefly describes evaluation systems used in five states: an internship program in Kansas, career ladders in Arizona and Tennessee, Mississippi's Accountability/Instructional Model, and New Mexico's Staff Accountability Plan. Georgia's teacher evaluation program is described in detail in chapter 3. Among the aspects of Georgia's program that are covered are teacher testing in basic skills, general knowledge, professional education, and specific subject areas; the use of norm- and criterion-referenced tests; certification and testing; on-the-job assessment; the selection and training of evaluators; the scheduling of evaluations; and staff development efforts aimed at meeting demonstrated needs. Chapter 4 identifies factors to consider when evaluating for promotions or salary increases. Twelve references and a list of nine bookets available from the Education Commission of the States are provided. (Pgd)

Fifty education chiefs : a basis for comparison by Doris L Ross( Book )

4 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Information obtained in a survey of chief state school officers in May 1975 pulls together diverse factors that help to clarify the general understanding of the officer's position in each state, as well as those factors that most commonly define all chiefs. Chiefs' salaries, ranging from $20,000 to $75,600 did not often bear a direct relationship to state economies, salary levels, or per-pupil expenditure. Selected conditions affecting salaries seem to be limited to geographical location and the method of selection--elected chiefs tended to have lower average salaries than appointed chiefs, and appointed chiefs with contracts had the highest average salaries. Job security for the chiefs is limited. Few of them are evaluated with any consistency or by any specific criteria. Required qualifications and competencies vary from state to state. Generally, the surveyed chiefs had more extensive documented expertise than is required by state law or policy. (Author/MLF)

State involvement in education labor relations : a report on four states by Doris L Ross( Book )

3 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The discussion in this report focuses on the state-level structures and processes for the administration of teacher bargaining in four very different states: New York, Minnesota, California, and Kansas. Sections on each state are based on interviews with personnel in state labor relations agencies or boards. Each state's structure is described and the process for implementing the law is discussed with an emphasis on representation procedures, impasse resolution, and unfair practice charges. Brief conclusions follow. Appendices include a "model report" for state labor relations agencies to consider as a format for reporting data, and paper number 31 of the Education Commission of the States (ECS) Center for Education Finance and Law entitled "Administrative Agencies: Issues and Problems in Public Education Collective Bargaining." The latter paper is a discussion, based on a literature review, of administrative agency behaviors and includes a description of several models of behavior. It is available separately from ECS.
