TEACHER PERFORMANCE APPRAISAL IN TURKEY: AN ALTERNATE MODEL

Özlem Yeşim Özbek, Pervin Oya Taneri

Abstract


The research is trying to answer the question of what should be the multi-stakeholder performance system sensitive to the Turkish education system in line with the attitudes and opinions of the teacher, school principal and teacher candidates towards the multi-stakeholder teacher performance evaluation system. A total of 304 teachers, principals, teacher candidates, trainee teachers, and contracted teachers were participated in the study. A mixed methods research was used in this study. Content analysis, factor analysis, frequency analysis and non-parametric analysis methods were used to analyze the data. According to the findings, the majority of the participants stated that teacher performance evaluation could be done through class observation. The findings also revealed that the majority of the participants did not feel discomfort from the involvement of school administrators, parents and students in the teacher performance evaluation.
