AN ANALYSIS OF SOME NECESSARY QUALITIES OF TEACHERS.
SCHMID, MARVIN O.; AND OTHERS
TEACHER CHARACTERISTICS WERE STUDIED IN TERMS OF RELATIONSHIPS AND RELEVANCY TO EFFECTIVE TEACHING, INCLUDING SUCH TRAITS AS KNOWLEDGE OF SUBJECT MATTER, SOCIAL INTELLIGENCE, KNOWLEDGE OF EDUCATIONAL PSYCHOLOGY, ACHIEVEMENT AND AFFILIATION MOTIVES, PROFESSIONAL ATTITUDES, AND KNOWLEDGE OF ABILITIES AND BACKGROUNDS OF THEIR STUDENTS. DATA COLLECTION INSTRUMENTS WERE GATHERED OR CONSTRUCTED FOR ASSESSING THESE CHARACTERISTICS AND THEIR INTERRELATIONSHIPS. THE DATA WERE OBTAINED FOR APPROXIMATELY 100 EXPERIENCED AND 120 STUDENT TEACHERS. RESULTS FOR BOTH GROUPS WERE THEN CORRELATED TO ESTABLISH SIMILARITIES THAT WOULD SUGGEST SOME STABILITY OF TRAIT STRUCTURE. THE EXPERIENCED AND STUDENT TEACHERS' WITH SPECIALITIES IN ENGLISH, SOCIAL STUDIES, SCIENCE, AND MATHEMATICS WERE ALSO CROSS-COMPARED. INTERCORRELATIONS OF THE CHARACTERISTICS AND THEIR SUBCOMPONENTS OBTAINED BY ANALYSIS PROVED TO BE MUCH LOWER THAN HAD BEEN ORIGINALLY EXPECTED. HOWEVER, THE FACTOR STRUCTURES DERIVED BETWEEN THE EXPERIENCED AND STUDENT GROUPS OF TEACHERS SHOWED GREAT SIMILARITY. IN ADDITION, THE TEACHERS WHEN CLASSIFIED BY SPECIALITY SHOWED NO SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES. (JH)
