Abstract

The answers at many questions connected with the teaching process lie in the professional development of teachers, and it represents the most important segment of a comprehensive and systemic reform. The number of experts who examined the factors that influence the success and achievements of students is big and they all agree that teacher has a key role. Therefore, schools in their development plans must take into account the necessity of continuous professional development of teachers, especially in the very complex process of assessment, and the need to create a stimulating environment for both teachers and students. Learning teams as a form of professional training of the teachers have a great contribution for improving the assessment and the overall educational process, and therefore this issue needs also to be paid attention. Teachers need to be continually professionally trained in order to promote and objectivize the process of assessing the students. The aim of this paper is to highlight the characteristics of learning teams and to indicate their importance for the professional development of teachers, having the goal to enhance the assessment and achievement of set standards i.e. the implementation of the objectives. The justification of the analysis and the criteria justification of the capabilities for forming the learning teams through which the skilled competencies of the teachers will develop in a more positive way comes from our long term experience and work practice that is connected with this type of problem, and from the direct involvement in workshops with programs for professional development and reaching better competencies of the teachers in connection to the assessment of the achievements of the students through the learning teams. In relation to this, there are some deep considerations from some relevant institutions like the Bureau for Education Development, results from surveys and interviews realized with the teaching staff, as with other relevant factors in the educational process.
