"Since 1988, the Personnel Evaluation Standards have come to be recognized as the universal benchmark for quality control in defining, designing, and implementing educator evaluation systems.

The authoritative source on evaluating educational personnel!

Personnel evaluation plays a vital role in supporting professional growth. This updated resource provides 27 standards that together have been approved as an American National Standard (ANSI/JCSEE 1-2008) for use in developing sound evaluation policies and procedures for staff in PreK through graduate school.

Covering the propriety, utility, feasibility, and accuracy of staff evaluations, these standards offer support for decisions that affect tenure, dismissal, promotion, and staff development. The second edition reflects the changing educational climate by providing important new standards, substantive revisions to existing standards, and updated case studies. This book offers educational administrators and supervisors:

  • In-depth explanations of each standard and its rationale, application guidelines, and common errors in implementation
  • Brief case studies with follow-up analysis
  • A functional table of contents to help locate specific standards pertinent to individual evaluations

This comprehensive resource has everything you need to build a legal, fair, and accurate personnel evaluation system in any educational setting.

"The second edition is comprehensive and reflects the best in current research and theory for not only evaluating teachers but also supporting professional growth as a consequence of the evaluation process."

Robert J. Marzano, President
Marzano and Associates

"Since their first publication in 1988, the Personnel Evaluation Standards have come to be recognized as the universal benchmark for quality control in defining, designing, and implementing educator evaluation systems across the United States and, indeed, across the world. The clear, practical, and systematic explanations and application make the standards essential for any educational professional concerned with performance evaluation."

James H. Stronge, Heritage Professor of Educational Policy, Planning, and Leadership
College of William and Mary

"The personnel evaluation standards give our district guidance on how to improve our professional practice and service to benefit students. I encourage anyone who supervises and evaluates educational personnel to become familiar with the standards and to use them as the Joint Committee recommends. The more consistent we are with our evaluation practices, the more we will help students."

Robert J. Rodosky, Executive Director of Accountability, Research, and Planning
Jefferson County Public Schools, KY

Praise for the First Edition:
"So often with regard to evaluation, we cognitively know what we want from individuals, but get caught in how to develop as well as apply standards of expectation. This is a recommended read for school district personnel, colleges, universities, state education departments, and accrediting agencies."

Key features
  • Each standard chapter provides an in-depth explanation, rationale, guideline for application, and list of common errors in practice.
  • Brief case studies illustrate either exemplary or cautionary applications of the standard followed by an analysis to either support or correct the application.
  • A Functional Table of Contents guides the reader to focus on specific standards especially pertinent to the desired outcome of the evaluation such as tenure decisions or providing follow-up staff development.
  • A separate chapter offers insight into how users such as school districts and university departments may apply these standards to promote sound personnel evaluation, thus avoiding costly errors that may result in lawsuits, loss of effective personnel, or lack of credibility.
