THE RELIABILITY OF OBSERVATIONS OF TEACHERS' CLASSROOM BEHAVIOR.
BROWN, BOB BURTON; AND OTHERS
THIS PORTION OF AN "INVESTIGATION OF OBSERVER-JUDGE RATINGS OF TEACHER COMPETENCE" WAS PRIMARILY DEVOTED TO STATISTICAL ISSUES IN ASSESSING THE RELIABILITY OF OBSERVATIONS OF TEACHERS' CLASSROOM BEHAVIOR. FROM 67 TO 130 STUDENT TEACHING SUPERVISORS, ACADEMIC PROFESSORS, AND EDUCATION PROFESSORS FROM TWO LARGE MIDWESTERN UNIVERSITIES AND TWO "TEACHERS COLLEGE-TYPE" INSTITUTIONS VIEWED FIVE 10-MINUTE FILMS OF CLASSROOM TEACHING ON ONE OCCASION AND TWO OF THE FIVE FILMS AGAIN A YEAR LATER. AFTER EACH OF THE TWO VIEWINGS, SUBJECTS RESPONDED TO THE 62-ITEM TEACHER PRACTICES OBSERVATION RECORD, ON WHICH THE OBSERVER CHECKED THOSE OF THE LISTED PRACTICES OBSERVED DURING THE FILM VIEWING. RELIABILITY FINDINGS WERE THAT CORRELATIONS (1) OF OBSERVERS' TOTAL SCORES WITHIN A GIVEN FILM VIEWING WERE VERY GOOD, (2) OF OBSERVERS' TOTAL SCORES BETWEEN REPEAT FILM VIEWINGS ONE YEAR APART WERE POOR TO FAIR, (3) BETWEEN-OBSERVER RELIABILITY WERE FAIR, (4) WITHIN-OBSERVER RELIABILITY WERE FAIR, AND (5) OF INTERNAL CONSISTENCY RELIABILITY WERE VERY GOOD.
