THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN SCHOOL SELF-EVALUATION PROCEDURES AND CHANGES IN TEACHERS' EXPRESSED ATTITUDES IN SIX AREAS OF PROFESSIONAL HUMAN RELATIONS.
ALAM, DALE
TO DETERMINE WHETHER OR NOT TEACHERS ENGAGED IN SCHOOL SELF-EVALUATION STUDIES EXPERIENCED ATTITUDE SHIFTS OVER TIME TO A LESSER DEGREE THAN THOSE NOT THUS ENGAGED, AND TO DETERMINE THE EXTENT OF SUCH SHIFTS, THE 90-ITEM TEACHER HUMAN RELATIONS QUESTIONNAIRE WAS ADMINISTERED TO NEARLY 700 TEACHERS IN 21 FLORIDA SCHOOLS, 11 OF WHICH WERE ENGAGED IN ACCREDITING OR REACCREDITING SELF-EVALUATION (EXPERIMENTAL GROUP) AND 10 WHICH WERE NOT (CONTROL GROUP). THE QUESTIONNAIRE MEASURED TEACHERS' EXPRESSED ATTITUDES TOWARD THE STUDENTS, PRINCIPAL, PROFESSION, COMMUNITY, SCHOOL, AND OTHER TEACHERS, AND FURNISHED, AS WELL, A TOTAL ATTITUDE SCORE. EIGHTY PERCENT OF THE QUESTIONNAIRES WERE RETURNED UPON INITIAL ADMINISTRATION AND 73 PERCENT AFTER THE SECOND ADMINISTRATION 7 MONTHS LATER. OVER TIME, CONTROL GROUP ATTITUDES TOWARD THE STUDENTS, PRINCIPAL, AND OTHER TEACHERS SHIFTED SIGNIFICANTLY IN A NEGATIVE DIRECTION. FOR THE EXPERIMENTAL GROUP, THE NEGATIVE SHIFT WAS TOWARD STUDENTS AND OTHER TEACHERS. NO SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES WERE FOUND FOR THE REMAINING ATTITUDINAL CATEGORIES. THE ABSENCE OF ANY SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE EXPERIMENTAL AND CONTROL GROUPS SUGGESTS THAT FACULTIES INVOLVED IN A SELF-EVALUATION PROCESS EXPERIENCE THE SAME SHIFTS IN AMOUNT AND DIRECTION OF EDUCATIONAL ATTITUDE AS THOSE FACULTIES NOT ENGAGED IN SUCH A PROCESS. IT WAS FOUND THAT THERE WERE WIDE DIFFERENCES IN EXPRESSED ATTITUDES OF TEACHERS FROM PREDOMINANTLY NEGRO AND WHITE FACULTIES. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE AMERICAN EDUCATION RESEARCH ASSOCIATION CONFERENCE (NEW YORK, FEBRUARY 18, 1967). (HA)
