Every school must be able to answer this question, “How do we assure that we have a great faculty to deliver the mission with excellence, and ultimately increase student performance, satisfaction, and enthusiasm?”
According to research, “teacher effectiveness” may be the dominant factor in student performance. The education industry has long attempted to develop teacher evaluation systems to assure that students have the most effective teachers. They have typically used a two-pronged approach: (1) use the results of the evaluation to drive teacher professional development, and (2) assure that only the best teachers are retained and rewarded from year to year. Despite the number of attempts and approaches, traditional teacher evaluation systems have been maligned because of their failure to accurately discriminate between effective and ineffective teachers or drive professional development. In other words, there is little evidence their use improves student outcomes.
- Review research illuminating why teacher evaluation doesn’t work as expected
- Outline the core issues as to why traditional evaluation of faculty can never work optimally
- Suggest a different paradigm and basic tenants of ISM’s Comprehensive Faculty Development II
