Effective teacher evaluation is at the core of improving the quality and value of education and principals bear the responsibility of implementing a teacher evaluation program that helps develop highly qualified teachers and promotes high academic standards. In their easy-to-use handbook, evaluation experts Kenneth D. Peterson and Catherine A. Peterson offer a fresh, innovative look into teacher evaluation methods, focusing on three central areas: 1) increasing the amount of objective data, 2) increasing teacher involvement, and 3) increasing the technical and sociological quality of the evaluation process. This excellent resource provides specific "how-to" methods to help principals:

  • Use the best objective evidence available
  • Put the teacher at the center of the process
