This book identifies good practices in the design and implementation of evaluation and teacher incentive systems from various perspectives through formulation, stakeholder negotiation, implementation, monitoring and follow-up. It guides the reader through the challenges and lessons learned from different educational environments, drawing on experiences from 24 countries (including India, Mexico, Singapore, the United Kingdom and the United States). The book serves as general reference for policy makers and educational authorities charged with designing, implementing and reforming teacher evaluation and incentive policies. It provides answers to the following questions: What aspects of performance in education should be rewarded and how should they be measured in evaluation systems?, Who should be rewarded? Individual teachers, groups of teachers or schools?, What mechanisms have effectively been used to reward teachers?, How should such policies be developed and implemented to ensure stakeholder engagement and commitment? Editor Susan Sclafani, former advisor of the government of the United States and one of the architects of its national educational policy, has drawn together contributions from leading experts in the area of teacher evaluation, incentives and stimuli for this volume.
