Many medical and dental schools have searched for ways to effectively and constructively evaluate performances of their faculty members.

Teacher evaluation is often designed to serve two purposes- to measure teacher competence and to foster professional development and growth. The goal of any effective evaluation process must be growth of good teacher2. Everyone wants to see our teachers grow and help them maximize their potential. Therefore the process is not one of “Got You” but rather one of facilitating growth. One of the qualities we need to have as educational leaders is that of humility and we should want to see our teachers succeed3.
