					    Philosophy as a Foundation
      for Staff Development
•   Essentialism
     –   basic truths exist outside of scientific proof
     –   basic task is to identify these truths
     –   external experts would be most knowledgeable
     –   teachers need to be involved but the real curriculum
         comes from outside their knowledge base within the
         classroom
•   Experimentalism
     – reality can only be established through experimentation
       in the classroom or school
     – everything is situation specific
     – there are no external truths
     – curriculum would be developed based on what works in
       the teachers classroom and school
•   Existentialism
     – all meaning exists only in individuals interpretation of
       the world
     – human dignity, self-worth, intuition, and self-
       determination are paramount
     – curriculum development is decentralized
     – existing knowledge only provides guidance to the
       teacher and school



                                                                  1
      Currently Used Models of
             Evaluation

•   Madeline Hunter
•   Richard Manatt
•   James Popham
•   Michael Scriven
•   Thomas McGreal
•   Art Costa and Robert Garmston
                 Madeline Hunter

•   Assumptions
     – Teaching is a learned profession, not a genetic
       endowment
     – Principles governing effective teaching can be described,
       taught, observed, and documented
     – Research based knowledge is stressed
     – All teachers should continue to grow
     – Peer coaching is to provide a formative process of
       supervision
     – District’s evaluation is summative
          • Based on many samples of teacher behavior
          • Conducted by trained administrator (50 hours min)
          • Should be based on stipulated criteria known by the teacher
            and administrator
•   Pre-evaluation conferences are not needed
•   Classroom observations consist of script taping
•   After the observation, the evaluator should infer
    reasons for success or lack of success
•   Staff Development consists of teaching effective
    practices to teachers (transfer, memory, rate and
    degree, 7-step lesson, etc.)
               Richard Manatt

• Little consideration of the differences between
  formative and summative evaluations. Only that
  summative occurs after formative efforts.
• Establish criteria
    – based on research, practice, local selection from
      large data base provided by Manatt (from items
      claimed to discriminate among teachers)
        • maintains effective relationships with students
        • prepares appropriate evaluation activities
        • demonstrates sensitivity in relating to students
• Set standards
    – typically involves setting descriptive levels of
      performance and linking to ranking or rating
      systems (meets, exceeds,far exceeds, not
      satisfactory, etc.)
• Conduct orientation, pre-observational
  conferences, classroom observations
• Identify teacher strength and weaknesses
  (supervisor generally does this)
• Write summative evaluation
• Set written growth targets (formative
  evaluation)
               James Popham

• The blending of formative and summative
  evaluation is a grave mistake
    – must be done by different individuals
    – trust cannot be achieved by the principal
    – two systems must be total separate
• Process-focused systems based on research are
  unsupportable
• No research exists that provides concrete
  guidelines that will always work
• Formative evaluations must be based on growth
  that teachers bring about
• Summative evaluations should be based on
  professional judgment
    – pooled judgment of at least three trained
      professionals
    – multiple sources of evidence
    – training program for evaluators is essential
• Typically used in university setting
             Michael Scriven

• Beliefs
   – Views teachers as professionals who retain a great
     deal of autonomy in the way they execute their
     duties
   – A fair summative evaluation system does not have
     to include a formative section (enriched system)
   – Current research cannot be exclusively used as a
     base for evaluation
   – Pre-post measurement does not establish that the
     teacher caused the growth and is therefore of
     limited use
• Advocates Duty-Based Evaluations
   – includes classroom performance but also other
     typical obligations
   – uses multiple measures to estimate the extent to
     which these teacher duties have been done well
   – focuses on merit (quality and quantity of teacher
     materials, student learning, professionalism, and
     ethics) not worth (multiple certifications,
     knowledge of community, etc.)
   – minimal level of achievement on all duties is
     required
       Thomas McGreal’s Model

•   Identify a framework for teaching
•   Establish clear minimal criteria
•   Separate formative from summative evaluation
•   Formative evaluation practices should involve
    individual goal-setting activities that occur
    between teachers and administrators
•   Different types of goals depending on the teacher
•   Goal setting is a cooperative process
•   Goals based on teaching framework
•   Collect data that makes sense
•   No ranking or rating scales
            Costa and Garmston

• Beliefs
   – teachers should not be evaluated against existing
     lists of competencies
   – teachers should be viewed as professionals who
     exercise judgment about what is appropriate--
     skilled autonomous, professional decision makers
   – teachers who function at higher cognitive levels
     produce higher achievement
   – teachers should be measured against their level of
     cognitive development level
• Advocates
   – growth focused evaluations (formative)
   – dismissal only if cognitive level is low at tenure
     decision time (summative)
   – teacher self-evaluation or peer evaluation
   – individual staff development based on cognitive
     level
   – purpose is to help teachers increase and perform
     intellectual functions of teaching, thereby
     developing their capacities for self-modification
                    Propositions

•   Proposition 1
     – Current Evaluation and Staff Development Practices
       do Little to Improve Classroom Instruction.
•   Proposition 2
     – Separation of Summative and Formative Evaluation is
       Essential
•   Proposition 3
     – Staff must be viewed as Individuals
•   Proposition 4
     – Conferencing Strategies Should be Custom Tailored to
       the Individual
•   Proposition 5
     – Evaluation and Staff Development Must be Linked
       Together
•   Proposition 6
     – Development Must Result in Changes in Classroom
       Instruction - What students receive
•   Proposition 7
     – Development Must be Viewed as a Continuous Process
       for Everyone


                                                              2
        Proposition 1
Current Practice is Ineffective
• Widely disregarded by teachers
• Generally unattractive to administrators
  and often poorly executed
• Not linked to anything in 99% of all
  cases
• Almost never results in changes in
  classroom practice
• Generally irritates parents




                                         3
  Why Then Do We Bother
  with Teacher Assessment?
• Changing Technology
   – More complex coordination is necessary
   – Know more about effective teaching
• Teacher as the Central Figure
   – Key ingredient, performance is essential
   – Most important part of the program
• Concern of Parents
   – Parents no longer know the child’s teacher
   – A move to state certification of teachers
   – Published reports that have been critical of
     schools
• Administrative Feedback to Better Plan
  Programs
   –   Placement
   –   Dismissal
   –   Validation of teacher selection process
   –   Promotions and special identification        4

• State Law or Board Policy
       Typical Efforts to Avoid
       Productive Evaluations
• No-nonsense Game
   – principal fills out evaluation form
   – ceremonial classroom visit
   – observations are avoided
   – principal remains aloof at all times
   – principal derives power from being judge, jury,
     and defender of the teacher
   – teacher must act the dependent protected and
     subservient role--does not have to be self-critical
   – all comments must be completely positive and
     non-discriminating
• Abdication Game
   – principals fear damaging relationships
   – role reversal is arranged where the teacher
     becomes the evaluator
   – reduces the responsibility load on the principal
   – maintains peaceful relations with the teachers
   – principal is forced into the position of accepting
     the teachers self-analysis
                                                          10
  Typical Efforts - continued

• Lets Be Accountable Game
   – emphasis on ritualized procedures that
     appear to be systematic, scientific, and
     objective
   – priority is given to showing that the staff is
     doing a good job
   – lack of effort devoted to finding and solving
     problems
   – versions
       •   elaborate instruments
       •   narrative reporting
       •   assignment of ratings
       •   preparation of profiles
       •   self/principal ratings
• Turkey Trot and Dance of the Lemons



                                                  11
       The Real Reason That
        Evaluation is Useful
• Teacher feedback needs
   – Improvement is impossible without
     systematic feedback
        • classroom isolation is a problem
        • lack of a concrete product causes uncertainty
        • lack of measures of success
• Self-concept is dependent on ones view
  of his/her own efficacy--lack of such
  feedback often results in
   –   lower levels of morale
   –   greater feelings of anxiety
   –   security focus--lack of risk taking
   –   slower growth rates
   –   distorted perceptions of reality




                                                          12
            Sound Practice

• Judging as distinguished from knowing
   – knowledge must precede judging
   – global judgments are not useful
       • He’s a weak teacher
       • She is the best in the building
       • She is good at asking open ended questions
• An act of evaluating as distinguished
  from a process of evaluation
   – a continuous process of related actions
   – improvement not bound to school calendar
• The teacher as distinguished from
  teaching
   – focus should be on the teaching act not
     characteristics of the teacher
   – Formative and Summative Evaluation
     should be kept separate

                                                      13
               What Is

• Supervision cannot rely on the existing
  work environment of schools to
  stimulate instructional improvement
• Supervisors cannot assume that teachers
  are reflective, autonomous, and
  responsible for their own development
• Supervisors will have to redefine their
  responsibilities--from controllers of
  teachers instruction to involvers of
  teachers in decisions about school
  instruction. (Carl Glickman, 1991)




                                       14
           What Can Be

• Supervision can strengthen teachers
  belief in a course beyond oneself
• Supervision can promote teachers sense
  of efficacy
• Supervision can make teachers aware of
  how they complement each other in
  striving for common goals
• Supervision can stimulate teachers to
  appraise, reflect, and adapt their
  instruction.
• Supervision can challenge teachers
  toward more varied, abstract thought.




                                       15
               Proposition 2
 Separation of Summative and Formative
         Evaluations is Essential

• Summative evaluations are based on
  meeting basic expectations
   – Clearly stated and known
   – Basic not desirable
   – All employees need to met all minimums all
     the time
   – Evaluation can occur at any time
   – Used for administrative purposes
• Formative evaluations are intended to
  produce growth
   – Basic characteristics
   – Face to face relationships between teacher
     and supervisor
   – A focus on the teachers actual behavior in
     the classroom
   – Not a remedy applied by the supervisor
   – Teacher centered supervision
   – Designed to help the teacher improve his or 16
     her instructional performance

                                                Generation       17
    Assumptions of Clinical
      Supervision Model
• To improve instruction, teachers must
  learn specific intellectual and behavioral
  skills
• Supervisor should take responsibility for
  helping the teacher develop
   – analytical skills based on data
   – adaptation, experimentation, curriculum
     skills
• Emphasis is on the instructional process,
  not teacher personality
• Emphasis is on making and testing
  instructional hypotheses
• Conferences deal with a few
  instructional issues that are important
  to the teacher and amenable to change
• Based on observational evidence
                                          18
• Continuous cycle of planning. observing,
  and analysis
             Proposition 3
      The Staff Must be Viewed as
              Individuals
• Teachers operate at different levels of
  professional development.
    – differ in ability to analyze instruction
    – to use a repertoire of problem-solving strategies
    – and match strategies to particular situations
• They need to be supervised in different ways
  (because of differing abilities, motivational
  levels, and effectiveness)
    – teachers at lower levels need more structure and
      direction
    – teachers at higher developmental levels need less
      structure and a more active role in decision-
      making
• The long-range goal of supervision should be to
  increase every teachers ability to grow toward
  higher stages of thought.
    – more reflective, self-directed teachers will be
      better able to solve their own problems and meet
      the educational needs of their students
    – thoughtful teachers promote thoughtful students
      (Carl Glickman, 1991)                           19

           Proposition 4

• Conferencing Strategies Should be
  Custom Tailored to the Individual




                                      22
       Directive Conferences

• Use When
   – Supervisor knows more about the content,
     students, pedagogy
   – When teacher motivational level is low
   – When analytical skills are lacking
• Keys to look for
   –   Difficulty in seeing relationships
   –   Difficulty in understanding data
   –   Wants rules
   –   Relies on authority
   –   Lack of concern
   –   Stagnant
   –   Limited use of instructional techniques




                                                 23
  Collaborative Conferences

• When to use
   – When knowledge of students, instruction,
     and content is roughly equal
   – When motivation is good
   – When analytical ability is good
• Keys
   – Teacher expresses interest in working
     together
   – Give-and-take relationship is productive
   – Teacher is comfortable with supervisor
   – There is an ability to build upon mutual
     suggestions




                                                24
  Non-Directive Conference

• Use when
  – Teachers knowledge, motivation, and
    analytical ability are high
  – Supervisor knows less than teacher
  – Teacher can be expected to self-improve
• Keys
  – Can define strategies
  – Can draw relationships
  – Can generate novel alternatives
  – Can evaluate and select consequences of each
    alternative
  – Takes initiative to improve
  – Understands the subject area in relation to
    the scope and sequence
  – Knows subject area beyond existing guides



                                              25
     Basic Skills of the Three
      Conference Protocols
• Setting tone-adjusting anxiety level to facilitate
  learning
• Setting Purpose-describing intended outcomes,
  duration, and success criteria
• Initiating-beginning conference slowly
• Listening-striving for complete understanding
• Reflecting-verbalized understanding of initial
  statements
• Clarifying-probing for underlying areas of
  potential growth
• Encouraging-keeping the discussion going
• Reflecting-understanding teachers message and
  identifying general areas of growth
• Problem Solving-identification of growth areas
  and steps to be taken
• Presenting-searching for understanding and
  commitment
• Standardizing-establishing action plan
• Evaluating-conference feedback for                 26
  improvement
     Examples of Conference
           Protocols
• Supervisor: Thanks for coming, lets review
  where we are going today
• Supervisor to secretary: Mary, could you hold
  all calls while Jim and I try to establish some
  growth targets this year.
• Supervisor: I hear you saying that .....
• Supervisor: I’m following what you are saying,
  please continue
• Supervisor: Please check my understand. I think
  you are saying that ......
• Supervisor: What would be some alternative
  ways we could approach this issue?
• Supervisor: OK, then we have agreed that the
  focus this year will be decreasing desist
  statements in your math classes. Ill code that
  behavior on a random basis and we will sit down
  ......
• Supervisor: Jim, how do you think we might
  work more effectively in these goal setting

  conferences?
    Goal Setting Conferences
            Format
• Conference Introduction
   – Purpose: To introduce the conference and
     prepare the participants to get the maximum
     benefit from the chosen format
• Analysis
   – Purpose: To cause the teacher to engage in a self-
     analysis while the supervisor gathers information.
     To make sure the supervisor has an accurate
     perception of the teachers concerns
   – Goal Identification
   – Purpose: To facilitate goal identification and the
     underlying objectives that might be necessary to
     accomplish the overall goal
• Future Planning
   – Purpose: To develop a concrete plan of action that
     specifies the who, what, when, how often, and
     measurement standards of the improvement
     effort.
   – Critique
   – Purpose: To obtain feedback about the nature
     and conduct of the conference to improve future 28
     developmental work with the teacher.
           Proposition 5

• Evaluation and Staff Development Must
  be Linked Together




                                      29
           Proposition 6

• Development Must Result in Changes in
  Classroom Instruction




                                      30
            Instrumentation

• Major Considerations
   –   What purpose is to be served?
   –   What data sources are needed and available?
   –   What criteria are most relevant?
   –   What procedures are most appropriate?
   –   What instruments are most useful?




                                                31
                 Data Sources

• Teacher self-reports
   –   self-knowledge
   –   active involvement
   –   low cost
   –   bias, subjectivity, conflict of interest
• Observations
   –   only selected activities
   –   high cost
   –   limited validity without multiple observations
   –   only way to collect some kinds of data
   –   face validity
• Student Reports
   – students have extensive exposure
   – low cost
   – lack of acceptance
• Peers
   –   may lack observation skills
   –   may be limited by contract
   –   can be of high face validity                     32
   –   must be done in trusting environment
    Selected Data Collection
          Instruments
• Selective Verbatim - a type of script tape
   – Focuses on verbal behavior of the teacher or
     students
   – Does not include all behaviors, only those
     selected for observation
   – An objective, non-interpretive record of
     behavior
   – Relatively simple to use
   – Sometimes important context is lost




                                                33
   Uses of Selective Verbatim

• Analysis of teacher or student questions
    –   Cognitive level
    –   Amount of information
    –   Redirection to other students or answer given
    –   Probing questions
    –   Multiple questions
    –   Feeling tone of question
    –   Reasonableness of question given student ability
• Analysis of teacher feedback
    – Amount
    – Variety
    – Specificity
• Analysis of teacher directions and structuring
  statements
    –   Amount

 Observational Records Based
     on Seating Patterns
• At task observational systems - recording the
  extent to which individual students are engaged
  in various activities
• Major considerations when using this system
    –   getting the correct observational position
    –   identifying the students to observe
    –   creating a legend or coding key
    –   deciding the time interval in which to observe the
        particular behavior
• Uses
    – Identify which students are on or off task
    – Identify the extent to which ALT is present across
      differing groups of students
    – To profile the behaviors of differing groups of
      students
    – Identify the frequency and duration of various
      types of teacher behaviors
    – Identify the frequency and duration of classroom
      activity patterns such as small group work, class
      discussions, transitions, conceptual development
                                                        35
      of lesson, etc.
• Verbal Flow
   – Major considerations when using the system
      • getting in the correct observational position
      • identification of the target students
      • designing arrows or other markers that have
        specific meaning
            – directional
            – frequency
            – action taken
   – Uses
      • seating location preferences
      • student preferences
      • interaction patterns
      • categories of verbal interaction that occur in the
        classroom or among students and the teacher
      • verbal behavior preferences




                                                         36
• Movement Patterns
   – tracking of student or teacher activities
• Flander’s Interaction Analysis
   – an examination of the teacher-student
     interaction patterns
   – an examination of teacher verbal behavior
• Global Screen
   – a very broad look at teaching that can track
     a number of patterns such as teacher
     question levels and student responses

     Basic Ability Level of the
             Student
•   Student ability to
     – acquire basic knowledge
     – link basic knowledge into patterns or schema that
       represent concepts
     – link current knowledge to past learning - transfer
     – link knowledge about one subject to another - transfer
     – mentally manipulate abstract ideas
     – synthesis information
     – create new knowledge
•   Schools can not control the students entering cognitive
    ability levels but they can adjust the instructional and
    curricular program to capitalize on existing levels of
    ability.
•   Key questions for the Principal to ask:
     – Is the instructional and curricular programs
       appropriate for the current ability level of students?
          • Do students understand the lesson and can they describe the
            important concepts or facts?
          • Do students understand the relationships among the concepts
            or facts?
          • Do students understand the relationship between the
            developmental part of the lesson and the assignments?

                                                                      39
 Past History and Experiences
        of the Student
• Relates to the breadth and depth of students
  prior history and experiences
• Students bring some of this information with
  them but also acquire a substantial amount from
  prior schooling experiences.
• Key questions for the principal
   – Are essential experiences present?
   – Does the teacher employ diagnostic techniques
     that enables them to use:
       • prior student experiences?
       • prior student knowledge?
       • transfer principles?
   – How does the current lesson link to past school
     experiences?
   – How does the current lesson directly link to the
     previous lesson?
   – How does the current lesson link to lessons in
     other subject areas?
   – How does the current lesson build on or utilize
     student background knowledge?
                                                        40
•   Dependent on five concepts or factors
     – Time allocated - the amount of teacher instructional
       time established for that particular subject
     – Time provided - the amount of time the teacher actually
       devotes to teaching of that particular subject
     – Time experienced - the amount of time a student is
       actually is engaged in learning
     – Academic learning time - the amount of time a student
       is engaged working on teacher directed tasks at a 80%
       success rate
     – Review - the extent to which a student is given the
       opportunity for additional ALT
•   Key questions for the principal
     – What is the engagement rate for the class as a whole?
     – What is the engagement rate for students throughout
       the class period?
     – What is the engagement rate for different groups of
       students (minority, majority, high ability, low ability,
       transfer students, etc.)?
     – Are all students at the ALT level?



                                                                  41
•   What the student experiences is the key question.
•   Key Questions for the principal
     – What is the appropriateness of the lesson given the:
          • students developmental level?
          • students readiness?
          • continuity from previously learned contents or processes?
     – How much emphasis is placed on important concepts
       and principles?
          • is their an overemphasis on facts and recall?
          • do the facts help illustrate the concepts?
          • does the teacher relate the concepts to prior learning and
            student experiences?
     – What is the clarity level of the presentations from a
       student perspective?
          • are they organized from the perspective of the student?
          • is the vocabulary appropriate to the students level of
            understanding?
          • can the students anticipate the next steps in the lesson?
     – Are concepts and principals presented with critical
       attributes, non-critical attributes, and non-exemplars?




                                                                         42

   – Successive approximation
• Celebrate, Recognize, Reinforce, and
  Reward Success
   – Place high value on the process
   – Include yourself and be visible to others
• Link with others
