THE EFFECTS OF STUDENT REACTIONS TO TEACHING METHODS.
HAYES, ROBERT B.; AND OTHERS
STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT AND ATTITUDE TOWARD SCHOOL SUBJECTS WERE STUDIED IN RELATION TO TEACHER FEEDBACK AND TEACHER ATTITUDE. THE STUDY SAMPLE CONSISTED OF 10TH GRADERS AND TEACHERS FROM 14 HIGH SCHOOLS. FIVE TREATMENTS OF TEACHER FEEDBACK WERE IMPLEMENTED AND EVALUATED--(1) STUDENT RATINGS OF TEACHERS WERE SENT TO THE TEACHERS BY MAIL SEVERAL TIMES DURING AN ACADEMIC YEAR, (2) FINDINGS OF TRAINED OBSERVERS OF SIX RECORDED CLASSROOM SESSIONS DURING AN ACADEMIC YEAR WERE MAILED TO THE TEACHERS, (3) FINDINGS OF THREE RECORDED SESSIONS WERE MAILED TO THE TEACHERS, (4) ONLY RESULTS OF STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT AND ATTITUDE PRETESTS WERE MAILED TO THE TEACHERS (HALF OF THE TEACHERS IN EACH OF THE FIRST THREE TREATMENTS ALSO RECEIVED THESE DATA), AND (5) NO FEEDBACK WAS SENT. NO STATISTICALLY SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES WERE FOUND BETWEEN ACHIEVEMENT OR ATTITUDINAL MEANS. MOST TEACHERS RECEIVING FEEDBACK INDICATED THE NEED FOR MORE INSERVICE TRAINING AND FACE-TO-FACE FEEDBACK RATHER THAN ONLY WRITTEN FEEDBACK BY MAIL. (RS)
