Evaluating Teacher Effectiveness in ESL/EFL Contexts

Christine Coombe, Mashael Al-Hamly, Peter Davidson, and Salah Troudi, Editors


This volume was written by language teachers for language teachers and administrators and reflects the growing interest in teacher evaluation and appraisal. One of the primary goals of this book is to showcase some of the interesting work being done throughout the world in the area of teacher evaluation and appraisal.

The book is organized into four parts. Part 1 provides an introduction and background information to the establishment of standards for teacher assessment. Part 2 presents case studies of successful teacher evaluation programs in five different countries. In Part 3, four studies that investigate various aspects of teacher evaluation are presented. Finally, Part 4 explores tools that facilitate teacher evaluation.

This book is a practical introduction and guide for teachers, teacher educators, and administrators who wish to implement a coherent, strategic, multiple-measures approach to evaluating teacher effectiveness.
