Chapter three reviews the literature on peer evaluation.

Chapter four provides an analysis of a peer supervision dyad. The analysis provided is based upon the Horizontal Evaluation Model and current related literature. The final chapter investigates the perceptions of teachers involved in peer supervision at the Conrich Elementary School, Calgary, Alberta.
