Excerpt from Term Paper:

In this way, teachers will know exactly what to expect and this will help allay their fear of change. Plus, showing that there are well-defined processes will help lend credibility to the curriculum evaluation program.

Third, the facilitator will conduct a thorough discussion with teachers on what the evaluation process will cover. The name curriculum evaluation is a bit of a misnomer and teachers need to understand that it entails more than just curriculum content, although this is certainly one important component of curriculum evaluation. The facilitator will discuss how teacher reflection, program evaluation, student assessment and methods of teaching and educational aids will also be included in the evaluation.
