PROBLEM-SOLVING PROFICIENCY AMONG ELEMENTARY SCHOOL TEACHERS, III. TEACHERS OF READING GRADES 2-5.
WADE, EUGENE W.
A RELIABLE NORMATIVE TEST COVERING A SAMPLE OF TEACHING SKILLS IN READING INSTRUCTION FOR GRADES 2-5 WAS CONSTRUCTED AND VALIDATED. THE HYPOTHESIS WAS MADE THAT TEACHERS BECOME MORE SKILLFUL IN SOLVING TEACHING PROBLEMS AS THEY GAIN EXPERIENCE. IT WAS SUGGESTED THAT A VALID TEST OF TEACHER SKILLS IN READING SHOULD THEREFORE REFLECT THIS PROCESS. SAMPLES OF TEACHERS, STUDENT TEACHERS, AND EDUCATION UNDERGRADUATES WERE TESTED AND COMPARED, CROSS SECTIONALLY, ON EACH OF NINE SUBTESTS AND ON A TOTAL TEST SCORE. ALL COMPARISONS REVEALED HIGHER PROFICIENCY AMONG THE MORE EXPERIENCED ON THE TOTAL TEST SCORES, ALTHOUGH SOME DISCREPANCY WAS FOUND IN THE SUBTESTING. SECONDARY CORRELATIONS WERE MADE BETWEEN THE READING-PROBLEMS TEST AND SELECTED INDEPENDENT VARIABLES, PARTICULARLY INTELLIGENCE AND READING COMPREHENSION. RESULTS ALLOWED PRELIMINARY VALIDATION OF THE TEST INSTRUMENT. THIS STUDY WAS DEVELOPED AS THE THIRD OF SEVERAL REPORTS ON COOPERATIVE RESEARCH PROJECT 419. (JH)
