CHARACTERISTICS OF MATHEMATICS TEACHERS THAT AFFECT STUDENTS' LEARNING.
TORRANCE, E. PAUL; AND OTHERS
TEACHER EFFECTIVENESS AS RELATED TO TEACHER-PUPIL INTERACTION, TO CLASSROOM CLIMATE, AND TO CREATIVE ABILITIES OF THE TEACHER WAS STUDIED. THE SAMPLE CONSISTED OF THE ORIGINAL 127 MATHEMATICS TEACHERS, GRADES 6-12, WHO PARTICIPATED IN THE SCHOOL MATHEMATICS STUDY GROUP (SMSG) EXPERIMENTAL INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS EVALUATION PROGRAM (1959-60). DATA WERE COLLECTED DURING THE 1960-61 AND 1961-62 SCHOOL TERMS. COMPLETE PREDICTOR AND CRITERION DATA WERE OBTAINED FOR 63 SUBJECTS AT THE END OF THE SECOND YEAR. THE SMSG MATERIALS WERE TAUGHT BY THE SUBJECTS IN ONE OF THEIR CLASSROOMS. THE STUDENTS WERE PRE- AND POST-TESTED FOR MEASURES OF (1) EDUCATIONAL AND MATHEMATICAL PROGRESS, (2) ATTITUDE, AND (3) APTITUDE. CONCLUSIONS, IMPLICATIONS, AND RECOMMENDATIONS WERE DISCUSSED UNDER THESE HEADINGS--(1) TEACHING EXPERIENCE, COURSES AND GRADES, AND PROFESSIONAL PARTICIPATION, (2) TEACHER PREPARATION TIME, (3) REPORTS OF TEACHER AND PUPIL ACTIVITIES, AND (4) STUDENT ATTITUDES. THE RESULTS SUGGESTED THAT THE CONVENTIONAL QUALIFICATIONS OF TEACHERS DID NOT DIFFERENTIATE TEACHER EFFECTIVENESS AND THAT TEACHER EFFECTIVENESS POSITIVELY AFFECTED STUDENT ATTITUDES TOWARDS TEACHERS, METHODS, AND THE OVERALL SCHOOL CLIMATE.
