This research was intended to examine Teachers' knowledge and attitude towards descriptive evaluation (DE) and its different dimensions in Sanandaj's primary schools. Research samples included two groups of teachers. The first group consisted of 84 teachers who were involved in the DE pilot study. The second group included 13 highly qualified and informed teachers who were working in the urban primary schools. In order to collect data both a questionnaire and semi-structured interview were used. The content validity of questionnaire was checked by the field experts, using Cronbach's Alpha, its reliability was measured to be 0.95. In order to analyze the quantitative data, t-tests and measures of central tendency were used and qualitative data were interpreted via content analysis the findings showed that teachers' knowledge and information about DE is not adequate. Secondly although DE is a more effective and innovative evaluation model which improves mental health of learning environment, its implementation is not an easy task for teachers because of some shortcomings and dysfunctions in the country' educational system.
