The purpose of this study was to test the effectiveness of the implementation of the Marzano Teacher Evaluation Framework (MTEF) in a Midwest school district. The study used quantitative methods to examine the process used to bring about change in the school district’s teacher evaluation model. The researcher examined teacher and administrator perceptions regarding change, professional development, instructional improvement, reliability, and overall satisfaction with ease of use of the MTEF model.
The researcher used data collected from one Midwest school district. The school district consisted of twelve elementary schools, four middle schools, and three high schools. A total of 682 teachers and 26 administrators were surveyed. Data was collected by way of an on-line survey. The survey included three sections. The first section contained three demographic questions. The second section consisted of five questions regarding the study’s research constructs: (a) change, (b) professional development, (c) instructional improvement, (d) reliability, and (e) overall satisfaction with the MTEF model’s ease of use. The final section consisted of 19 questions that aligned with the study’s research constructs. For each research construct, there were three to five questions. Data gathered from participants’ responses were analyzed and used to provide recommendations to other school districts and educators around the state and nation as they implement new teacher evaluation models.
