REACTIONS TO TEACHERS BY STUDENTS, PARENTS, AND ADMINISTRATORS.
BRYAN, ROY C.
THE EFFECTS OF STUDENT REACTIONS TO TEACHERS ON PARENTS' AND ADMINISTRATORS' JUDGEMENT OF TEACHERS AND ON OVERALL TEACHER EFFECTIVENESS WERE STUDIED. IN ADDITION, THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT AND TEACHER RATINGS BY ADMINISTRATORS AND STUDENTS WAS EXAMINED WITH RESPECT TO HIGH SCHOOL CHEMISTRY CLASSES. AN ABUNDANCE OF DATA WAS OBTAINED FROM QUESTIONNAIRES COMPLETED BY APPROXIMATELY 1,000 ADMINISTRATORS, PARENTS, TEACHERS, AND STUDENTS. THE FOLLOWING CONCLUSIONS WERE BASED ON THE DATA AS IT WAS PRESENTED--(1) THE IMAGE OF A TEACHER HELD BY STUDENTS USUALLY HAD MUCH IN COMMON WITH THE IMAGE HELD BY ADMINISTRATORS AND PARENTS, (2) THE OPINIONS ONE STUDENT GROUP HELD OF A CERTAIN TEACHER WAS USUALLY VERY SIMILAR TO THOSE OTHER PEER GROUPS HAD, AND INDIVIDUAL TEACHER IMAGES TENDED TO PERSIST IN SUCCEEDING YEARS, AND (3) NO SIGNIFICANT CORRELATION WAS FOUND BETWEEN TEACHER RATINGS OF STUDENTS OR ADMINISTRATORS AND STUDENT GAINS AS FAR AS SUBJECT MATTER LEARNED (SAMPLE CHEMISTRY CLASSES WERE USED FOR THIS STUDY), BUT HIGH CORRELATION WAS FOUND BETWEEN TEACHER PRESTIGE WITH STUDENTS AND DEVELOPMENT OF INTEREST IN AND LIKING FOR THE SUBJECT OF CHEMISTRY. IT WAS RECOMMENDED THAT STUDENT-REACTION REPORTS SHOULD RECEIVE WIDER USAGE IN FUTURE HIGH SCHOOL ACTIVITIES. (JH)
