CRITERION PROBLEMS IN VALIDATING TEACHER SELECTION POLICIES AND PROCEDURES.
MITZEL, HAROLD E.
IN DISCUSSING A RELIABLE AND VALID PRESERVICE PREDICTOR OF TEACHING EFFECTIVENESS, IT IS NOTED THAT MOST TEACHER SELECTION PROCEDURES DEPEND SOLELY ON PAPER AND PENCIL MEASURES OF VERBAL AND SYMBOL MANIPULATION ABILITY. THEREFORE, A NEW MULTIVARIABLE EVALUATION PROCEDURE IS OFFERED. IT CONSISTS OF (1) DEVELOPING EMPIRICAL DESCRIPTIONS OF CLASSROOM PERFORMANCE BY SYSTEMATIC RECORDING OF THE OBSERVABLE BEHAVIOR OF ALREADY EMPLOYED TEACHERS, (2) CONSTRUCTING A COMPREHENSIVE SAMPLE OBSERVATION INSTRUMENT FROM THE DATA OBTAINED BY STEP 1, (3) ADMINISTERING THE SAMPLE OBSERVATION DEVICE TO ALL TEACHER CANDIDATES IN A NATURALISTIC CLASSROOM SETTING (E.G., STUDENT TEACHING) SEVERAL TIMES, (4) EMPLOYING ALL CANDIDATES (NECESSARY FOR VALIDATION OF INSTRUMENT), (5) SYSTEMATICALLY OBSERVING AND SCORING THE BEHAVIOR OF ALL IN THE SAMPLE, (6) USING THE DATA OBTAINED TO RANK ORDER THE SAMPLE AND ESTABLISH A TRIAL SCORE DIFFERENTIATING BETWEEN A SATISFACTORY AND AN UNSATISFACTORY GROUP, AND (7) ANALYZING THE PRE-EMPLOYMENT AND EMPLOYMENT RATING OF INDIVIDUALS TO TEST THE PREDICTIVE VALUE OF THE INSTRUMENT. THIS DOCUMENT APPEARED IN GILBERT, H.B., AND LANG, G., "TEACHER SELECTION METHODS," 1967. (RP)
