Teaching Evaluations for Teachers at Hunter College


This evaluation form will assess your student’s ability to evaluate teachers. The purpose of this form is to help you assess whether the student has been able to observe and identify effective teaching strategies. The cast includes a list of possible scenarios and examples of good teaching. You are encouraged to provide comments about the student’s observations.

This week, I will teach my students an evaluation of teaching skills. Here are some tips for teachers considering doing the same thing.

In NYC, public schools are required by law to evaluate their teachers. And the only way to get a good evaluation is to have the teacher rate themselves.

This is a tricky situation for teachers because they must evaluate themselves while simultaneously being evaluated by their students.

So here are some tips for how to do an effective evaluation in the classroom, even if you don’t have access to a school full of students.

In today’s job market, people look for a competitive edge, and many teachers spend hours learning new teaching methods. This study evaluates teacher effectiveness by comparing what the teachers say in evaluations and the data gathered by the teaching evaluation committee (TEC). While the TEC uses objective measures, such as student test scores and classroom observations, they allow teachers to express what matters to them.

Evaluating Teacher Effectiveness

You’ve been doing evaluations for years. You know how to do them. And yet you haven’t done them. Why?

I’m sure you’ve heard this from your boss. “We already have an evaluation system in place.”

Well, we all know what that is. It’s a pile of paperwork. It’s a system that’s filled with checkboxes and forms.

It’s time to ditch that evaluation method and use a more effective approach.

An evaluation is a process of assessing the quality of a product or service.

In the case of a teacher, an evaluation is a tool that assesses the effectiveness of the teacher’s work.

To evaluate effectively, you must ask specific questions and provide clear, measurable answers.

You’ll need to ask some pretty straightforward questions, like:

  • What did you do well?
  • What could you improve on?
  • How much did you learn?
  • How would you change your lesson plan?
  • How much did you contribute?
  • How did you feel about the class?
  • How would you improve your teaching skills?

Asking these questions can help you identify what you’re good at and where you can improve.

Evaluation Tips

The best way to evaluate your teaching is to think about what you’d do if you were writing a restaurant or hotel review.

How to evaluate a teacher’s effectiveness

To ensure validity, the teacher must be trained to do the evaluation. Many free courses are available to help prepare you for the task, but I prefer hiring professional evaluators.

Evaluating yourself is difficult, but hiring an experienced professional evaluator is a huge step up.

It is best to find someone who has worked in education for many years, preferably someone who has taught in the district where you work.

They should be able to understand the demands of your job and the difficulties you face every day.

The person should have experience evaluating the effectiveness of teachers and administrators.

They should have experience evaluating the effectiveness of other professionals, such as doctors, lawyers, and psychologists.

The evaluator should have an educational psychology background and experience teaching in the subject area.

They should have experience teaching in the district you work.

They should have experience evaluating teachers in your district.

The evaluator should have experience evaluating the effectiveness of teachers and administrators.

How to teach students effectively

This post is about ensuring your evaluations are worth your time.

I have been in many evaluation conversations over the last few years. I’ve helped teams with their evaluation plans, given feedback on candidates, and talked with HR departments about what they look for. There are a few common things I hear that I want to cover here in hopes that it helps others avoid some of the pitfalls. How do you get started? First, you probably don’t know where to start if you’re like most people.

How to use effective questioning techniques

One of the most important things I learned when I taught for the first time was how to use questions to get students to think and do effectively.

When I was a student teacher, I didn’t always use the right kinds of questions. I knew what to ask but didn’t know how to ask it.

After a few years of teaching, I’ve learned that the best questions lead to thinking, while the worst ones lead to answers.

Questioning can be hard for beginners. They may think the answer will automatically come if they ask a question correctly.

That is not the case. If you have a clear question, the student will think about the answer and eventually give you the right answer.

However, if you ask a question that is unclear or requires more than one answer, the student is less likely to provide you with the correct answer.
