Integral criterion for measuring the quality of teachers’ evaluation
MetadataShow full item record
Purpose – To construct the knowledge evaluation quality integral criterion, which allow ascertaining whether the different teachers assess properly the students’ knowledge. The criterion has been tested setting up the educational experiment and examining the six mathematics lecturers’ assessments. Design/methodology/approach – This research involved the Mykolas Romeris University students of Public Administration degree second year and Management of Organizations degree first year. The test questions for students were designed using the mathematical knowledge assessment information system, which allows for closed-ended mathematical test, to obtain statistical data about test takers, to perform quality analysis of the test; in the middle and the end of the semester. Findings – The construction technique for the evaluation quality criterion of the students working results assessment, which were performed by six different lecturers, during practical trainings, seminars, laboratory and other sessions is proposed in this article. Research limitations/implications – The constructed evaluation criterion is universal: it does not depend on the particular subject; it can be applied to several groups, courses or lecturers. It depends on three calculated indicators I, S, K, which show in two ways obtained estimates of the measured information compability of degrees, marks matching and correlation terms. Practical implications – The integral criterion has been tested examining the six mathematics lecturers’ assessments. Originality/Value – Constructing the criterion have been used the educational measurement models of authors of this article and other researchers, however its’ connection to general (integral) criterion, best of authors’ knowledge, is original and have not be researched before. Keywords: knowledge evaluation, quality of teachers’ evaluation, evaluation of teachers, mathematical modeling. Research type: research paper.
