The process of evaluation exists in all professions. In education, the evaluation process has changed dramatically since the turn of the century. Prior to the 1900's, teachers were appraised on the basis of their managerial skills. Students were responsible for their own achievement. With the advent of graded classrooms, the evaluation process was redesigned to hold more teachers accountable. In the 1960's and 1970's, there was considerable pressure from administrators and teachers to develop an evaluation model congruent with the primary purpose of evaluation, improvement of instruction (Millman, 1981).
