Abstract

It was the purpose of the researcher to survey administrators in Western Kansas high schools to determine attitudes toward teacher evaluation, practices employed in teacher evaluation and the effect of selected variables upon their opinions. Senior High School administrators surveyed were from high schools West of U.S. Highway 81, including the Salina and Wichita schools. Of the 237 questionnaires mailed, 181 useable ones were returned. This was a return of 76 percent. The following independent variables were investigated: (1) the effect school size had upon administrator’s opinions concerning what should be done and what they were actually doing with teacher evaluation; (2) the effect the number of personnel evaluated had upon the administrator’s opinions concerning what should be done and what they were actually doing; and (3) the effect the number of years in administration had upon administrator’s opinions concerning what should be done and what they were actually doing. Twenty-five hypothesis were tested, four of which were significant at the .05 level.
