Evaluating teacher competence

To evaluate teacher competence effectively, teacher educators should be able to:

  • define appropriate criteria for evaluating teachers’ skills and knowledge
  • evaluate teachers’ skills and knowledge using a range of tools and methods, such as observation, self-assessment and student feedback
  • give teachers oral and written feedback that is clear, specific and related to the evaluation criteria
  • evaluate teachers formatively and use the results to support teacher learning
  • evaluate teachers in a manner that is transparent, fair and which supports their professional learning
