A study was conducted to determine the extent to which public school teachers of kindergarten through grade 6 have experienced formal evaluations in their current school and the procedures employed in evaluating teacher performance. The nationally representative Survey on Teacher Performance Evaluations was administered to approximately 1,000 elementary school teachers in the spring of 1993. Findings include the following: (1) most teachers (89 percent) believe their last performance evaluation provided an accurate assessment of their teaching performance; (2) 94 percent reported that evaluation criteria were known to them prior to assessment; (3) 92 percent reported that their most recent evaluation included classroom observations; (4) while 99 percent said that subject matter knowledge should be a consideration in performance evaluation, only 65 percent said it had been considered in their most recent evaluation; (5) most teachers perceived that their evaluators were competent to judge performance in selected aspects of teaching; and (6) three-fourths of the sample indicated that determining teachers' pay levels was not an objective of evaluations at their school, and 50 percent agree that this should not be an objective. Fourteen statistical tables of estimates and standard errors and a sample copy of the survey instrument are appended. (LL)
