  • What is the MOST Effective Way to Evaluate Teachers?

    Posted by Tucker on 2020-07-29 at 2:56 PM

    There are a number of online platforms for evaluating teachers, including student evaluations as well as various online evaluation platforms outside of school. There are different views on the most effective way to evaluate teachers. First, we need to be very clear about the purpose of teacher evaluations. It is about how to improve teachers’ teaching. The aim is not so much to move from one stage to another, but rather to make sure that the teaching meets the needs of the students in order to improve their academic performance. The academic standards here are not limited to GPA but also include academic ethics, academic standards and other important qualities of being a student. Therefore, once the purpose of assessment is clear, we can then explore the most effective ways to assess it. I read an article titled “5 Ways to Improve Teacher Evaluation Systems” (https://www.edutopia.org/article/5-ways-improve-teacher- evaluation-systems). I think this article is worth recommending. I wonder how you think about this issue?

    In my opinion, there is no most effective way to assess teaching because, each student has different expectations for teachers. It is certainly necessary to assess teachers’ teaching. However, we need to reform the current teaching assessment so that the assessment itself is of real value and not just a formality. Each country has its own means of assessing teaching and learning. This means that different countries should learn from each other. This is an issue that is sorely lacking. At the same time, there is a lack of discussion on assessment in education at the moment. It is necessary to include students, parents, teachers, administrators, etc. in the reform of the teaching assessment.
