Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Teachers have often been frustrated with the typical evaluation process that has an administrator doing the perfunctory, routine, bureaucratic requirements of assessing teachers once or twice a year (Rothberg, 1979; Wise & Darling-Hammond, 1985). Singh (1984) has claimed "some educators have charged that the existing ratings and written evaluations are of limited use in offering supervisory help to teachers for the improvement of instruction" (p. 73). Our nation, in the early days of American education, had practiced peer evaluation when the master teacher exercised evaluation responsibility over his colleagues (Ban & Soudah, 1978). As the public school system expanded and professional school administrators were trained to accept the administrative responsibility for the evaluation of instruction, the method of peer evaluation was abandoned.
