EDUCATIONAL ATTITUDES AND PERCEPTIONS OF DESIRABLE TRAITS OF TEACHERS.
KERLINGER, FRED; PEDHAZUR, ELAZAR
TO TEST THE HYPOTHESIS THAT PERCEPTIONS OF THE CHARACTERISTICS OF EFFECTIVE TEACHERS ARE INFLUENCED BY JUDGES' ATTITUDES TOWARD EDUCATION, SEVEN "SUCCESSFUL" ADJECTIVE-CHECKLIST AND AGREE-DISAGREE SCALES (AMONG AN INITIAL 11 SCALES) WERE ADMINISTERED TO EIGHT SAMPLES OF FROM 131 TO 556 TEACHERS AND GRADUATE EDUCATION STUDENTS IN FIVE STATES. THOSE WHO CHARACTERIZED THEMSELVES AS HAVING PROGRESSIVE PHILOSOPHIES OF EDUCATION TENDED TO PERCEIVE PERSON-ORIENTED TRAITS AS DESIRABLE FOR TEACHERS, WHILE "TRADITIONALISTS" SELECTED TASK-ORIENTED TRAITS AS DESIRABLE. FOR THE NEW YORK AND INDIANA SAMPLES (457), BOTH TEN- AND FOUR-FACTOR FIRST-ORDER ANALYSES WERE PERFORMED FOR A PROGRESSIVE-TRADITIONAL SCALE AND A TASK VERSUS PERSON-ORIENTED SCALE. TWO SECOND-ORDER FACTORS WERE EXTRACTED--ONE CHARACTERIZED BY PROGRESSIVISM AND PERSON-ORIENTED FIRST-ORDER FACTORS, AND THE OTHER BY TRADITIONALISM AND TASK-ORIENTED FIRST-ORDER FACTORS. THIS STRUCTURAL CONGRUENCE CONFIRMS THE HYPOTHESIS. THE AUTHORS FURTHER CONCLUDED THAT PROGRESSIVISM AND TRADITIONALISM ARE THE UNITIES UNDERLYING THE DOMAINS OF EDUCATIONAL ATTITUDES OR PHILOSOPHIES AND OF PERCEIVED TEACHER TRAITS. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE AMERICAN EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH ASSOCIATION ANNUAL MEETING (NEW YORK, FEBRUARY 18,1967). (LC)
