RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN TEACHER CHARACTERISTICS AND STUDENT BEHAVIOR--PART 111.
WALLEN, NORMAN E.
A SAMPLE OF 76 TEACHERS AND THEIR PUPILS, GRADES 1 AND 3, WAS USED IN THIS STUDY TO EXAMINE (1) RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN SPECIFIC TEACHER MEASURES AND PUPIL (CLASS) CHANGE AND STATUS MEASURES, (2) CONSISTENCIES AMONG MEASURES OF TEACHER BEHAVIOR, (3) RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN TEACHER BEHAVIOR AND TEACHER TEST DATA, AND (4) SPECIFIC TEACHER-PUPIL CLASSROOM INTERACTIONS. THE FOUR PARTS OF TEACHER BEHAVIOR STUDIED WERE CONTROL OF CLASS, AFFILIATION WITH THE STUDENT, STIMULATION OF PRESENTATION, AND ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT ORIENTATION. ON THE BASIS OF MEASUREMENTS OBTAINED USING THE STUDY SAMPLE AND ANALYSES OF RESULTING DATA, IT APPEARED THAT TEACHERS IN THE THIRD GRADE SHOULD BE STIMULATING AND INTELLECTUALLY EFFECTIVE AND, AT THE SAME TIME, WARM AND SUPPORTIVE PERSONS IF SUCH "DESIRABLE" OUTCOMES AS GAIN IN ACHIEVEMENT, LIKING FOR SCHOOL, LESS ANXIETY, AND INCREASE IN DIVERGENT THINKING ARE TO BE ACHIEVED. SUGGESTED QUALITIES OF GOOD FIRST-GRADE TEACHERS WERE ALSO STIMULATING AND INTELLECTUALLY EFFECTIVE CHARACTERISTICS, BUT SUCH OTHER CHARACTERISTICS AS OVERT AFFECTION AND STRONG PERSONALITY NEEDS FOR ACHIEVEMENT AND CONTROL WERE NEGATIVELY CORRELATED WITH "DESIRABLE" PUPIL OUTCOMES. CERTAIN PSYCHOLOGICAL TESTS USED IN THE STUDY OFFERED PROMISE IN THE PREDICTION OF SUCH TEACHER CHARACTERISTICS. OTHER RESEARCH EFFORTS CONDUCTED IN THE SUBJECT AREA, EITHER SINGLY OR JOINTLY BY THE AUTHOR OF THIS REPORT, WERE FUNDED, UNDER CONTRACTS OEC-444(8029), OEC-2-10-013, AND OEC-4-10-034. (JH)
