Evaluating the Evaluator: The Need for an Accurate Evaluation System for ELT Professionals in Private Universities
Shaheen Ara

Abstract: In private universities in Bangladesh, it is very common for talented English language teachers to move on to other academic institutions, other countries or even leave the profession altogether, simply because they were undervalued. This qualitative research examines how inaccurate teacher evaluations are in many ways responsible for the high turnover rate among ELT professionals teaching in private universities in the country. It also focuses on current evaluation practices, as well as their limitations and makes some recommendations on how evaluation techniques for English language teachers could be improved.
