Guidelines for Evaluating Teaching Introduction Just as there is no simple system for evaluating the quality of faculty research, there is no simple system for evaluating the quality of faculty teaching. However, by thinking carefully about the purposes of evaluation, and by crafting multiple methods of evaluation that suit those purposes, one can devise evaluation systems that are reliable, valid, and fair. Equally important, the process of discussing and crafting evaluation systems focuses attention on the practice of good teaching and helps to create a culture in which teaching is highly valued. Some Principles of Teaching Evaluation Multiple methods.
Kathleen Maury Abstract As a result of the increased number of schools failing to meet adequate yearly progress AYPschool districts are searching for innovative ways to raise student achievement and meet the rigorous performance standards set by state governments.
Using the theoretical framework provided by brain research and the theory of multiple intelligences, the purpose of this quantitative study was to compare 2 middle school classroom structures for differences in mathematics achievement among students.
The study examined whether a significant difference existed in mathematics achievement scores on the state-mandated mathematics test for 2 groups single gender classes versus coeducational classes in 6 middle schools during a 3-year period.
Mean scores from the Palmetto Assessment of State Standards PASS performance statistics in mathematics were used to determine achievement levels of single-gender and coeducational instruction. Study results indicated a statistically significant difference in academic performance for students in single-gender mathematics classes compared with academic performance for students in coeducational mathematics classes.
Further, girls outperformed boys.

These findings led to a project consisting of implementing a professional learning community and a series of professional development sessions for Algebra I teachers.
The results of this study may contribute to social change by identifying an academic program structure in which all students can be supported academically while providing teachers with ongoing opportunities to collaborate and build their capacities with the goal of improving student performance.Dissertations from PDF.

PDF. A virtual learning environment (VLE) is a system that creates an environment designed to facilitate teachers' management of educational courses for their students, especially a system using computer hardware and software, which involves distance learning.
In North America, a virtual learning environment is often referred to as a "learning management system" (LMS). Learning mathematics is problematic for most primary school age children because mathematics is rote and the memorization of steps rather than an approach to seeing relationships that builds inquiry and understanding.
Therefore, the traditional "algorithmic" way of teaching mathematics has not fully prepared students to be critical thinkers and . Creating Effective Teaching and Learning Environments FirsT rEsuLTs From TALis T eaching A nd L earning I nternational S urvey.
