Requirements for an Assessment Procedure for Beginning Teachers: Implications from Recent Theories on Teaching and Assessment
by Anne Marie Uhlenbeck, Nico Verloop & Douwe Beijaard - 2002
The purpose of this study was to determine the best approach to the development of procedures to assess beginning teachers. First, studies on teacher thinking, teacher development, teacher learning and teacher knowledge were reviewed to obtain information on the most current views on the nature of teaching. Second, studies on new approaches to teacher assessment and on issues of validity and reliability were examined. An analysis of these topics yielded a set of implications that could be used as a basis for an adequate evaluation procedure. We propose a framework that consists of 15 implications for the development of beginning teacher assessments. We illustrate how the framework was applied in the development of an assessment procedure for beginning teachers.
