PROBLEM-SOLVING PROFICIENCY AMONG ELEMENTARY SCHOOL TEACHERS, IV. FURTHER INVESTIGATIONS OF TEACHERS OF ARITHMETIC, GRADES 3-6.
TURNER, RICHARD L.
THE QUESTION OF THIS STUDY WAS WHETHER PREVIOUSLY FOUND RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN INTELLIGENCE AND PROBLEM SOLVING WOULD HOLD UP EVEN THOUGH SEVERAL MODIFICATIONS HAD BEEN INTRODUCED INTO THE CRITERION INSTRUMENT. SAMPLES WERE DRAWN FROM BOTH PROFESSIONAL UNDERGRADUATE AND GRADUATE COURSES CONCERNED WITH THE TEACHING OF ARITHMETIC AT INDIANA UNIVERSITY AND FROM SEVERAL INDIANA SCHOOL SYSTEMS. BOTH WERE GIVEN THE CRITERION INSTRUMENT, THE MINNESOTA TEACHER ATTITUDE INVENTORY (MTAI), AND THE "STUDY OF VALUES." FROM THE RESULTS, IT WAS APPARENT THAT THOSE HYPOTHESES STEMMING FROM THE MTAI AND "STUDY OF VALUES" WERE NOT CONFIRMED. THE BELIEF THAT PERFORMANCE VARIES WITH OPPORTUNITY TO LEARN NEEDS FURTHER CAREFUL EXAMINATION. IT IS POSSIBLE THAT A COMPLEX SET OF RELATIONSHIPS EXISTS BETWEEN OPPORTUNITIES TO LEARN, ABILITY TO LEARN, AND TEACHER SELECTION PRACTICES IN SCHOOL SYSTEMS. WHILE SUCH RELATIONSHIPS COULD NOT BE EXTRACTED FROM THE PRESENT DATA, THE INVESTIGATOR FELT THAT THE VERY PROBABILITY THAT THEY EXIST SHOULD NOT BE OVERLOOKED IN SUBSEQUENT STUDIES. (GD)
