The Personnel Evaluation Standards: How to Assess Systems for Evaluating Educators

Front Cover
The Personnel Evaluation Standards, Second Edition describes 27 standard statements that together constitute the American National Standard (ANSI/JCSEE 1-2008) issued by the Joint Committee on Standards for Educational Evaluation. This book guides sound evaluations of educators across all levels, from Pre-K through graduate schools. Categorized by four attributes of evaluation propriety, utility, feasibility, and accuracy these standard statements offer insightŠand support for decisions that affect tenure, dismissal, promotion, and staff development. This second edition offers important new standards to provide a more comprehensive presentation. Readers will also find substantive revisions for each existing standard and rewritten case studies for extensive coverage of facets such as attention to cultural diversity and use of computer technology in obtaining, storing, and applying evaluation data.
