dc.description.abstract The purpose of the study was to measure the difference between teacher need fulfillment and desired need fulfillment as related to the teacher evaluation process. The study was designed to (1) measure teachers perceptions of need fulfillment through the evaluation process; (2) measure teachers perceptions of desired need fulfillment through the evaluation process; and (3) examine the relationship of the teacher evaluation process and discrepancies between actual need fulfillment and desired need fulfillment of teachers.A questionnaire was developed for the study. The questionnaire was designed to measure the perceptions of teachers actual and desired need fulfillment through the evaluation process. The questionnaire was adapted from questionnaires developed by Porter and Sergiovanni. The discrepancy between actual and desired need fulfillment provided a Need Deficiency score.The items on the questionnaire were designed to relate to four levels of needs as identified by Maslow: (1) Security; (2) Social; (3) Esteem; and (4) Self-Actualization. The questionnaire was administered to elementary, middle school, and high school teachers in a single school corporation in Northeast Indiana. Mean Need Deficiency scores were used to describe the deficiency of need fulfillment in the need levels of Security, Social, Esteem, and Self-Actualization.The analysis of data indicated the lowest level of need satisfaction was at the Social level for the teachers participating in the study. Elementary teachers had the highest Need Deficiency mean scores. The younger and less experienced teachers were generally the teachers with the highest Need Deficiency scores, and therefore were the least satisfied. en_US
