UNDERGRADUATE ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT AND TEACHING PERFORMANCE.
CARDOZIER, V.R.
THE OBJECTIVES OF THIS STUDY WERE TO DETERMINE (1) THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN TEACHER PERFORMANCE AND UNDERGRADUATE ACHIEVEMENT IN SELECTED DISCIPLINES, (2) THE RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN UNDERGRADUATE ACHIEVEMENT, BOTH TOTAL AND IN EACH OF 12 SUBJECTS, AND TEACHING PERFORMANCE, BOTH TOTAL AND IN NINE TEACHING FUNCTIONS, AND (3) THE VARIABILITY OF TEACHER PERFORMANCE ACCORDING TO UNDERGRADUATE ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT. A 25 PERCENT RANDOM CLUSTER SAMPLE OF 1959 AND 1960 AGRICULTURAL EDUCATION GRADUATES FROM 16 INSTITUTIONS IN THE UNITED STATES PRODUCED 188 TEACHERS WHO HAD COMPLETED BETWEEN 2 1/2 AND 3 1/2 YEARS OF TEACHING IN THEIR OWN STATES. DATA WERE GATHERED ON ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT FROM COLLEGE TRANSCRIPTS AND ON TEACHING PERFORMANCES FROM RATINGS BY PRINCIPALS AND DISTRICT SUPERVISORS. SIGNIFICANT POSITIVE CORRELATION WAS FOUND BETWEEN TEACHING PERFORMANCE AND ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT IN BIOLOGICAL SCIENCES, AGRICULTURAL EDUCATION, AND STUDENT TEACHING. NEGATIVE CORRELATION WAS FOUND BETWEEN TEACHING PERFORMANCE AND ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT IN MATHEMATICS, GENERAL EDUCATION, AND AGRICULTURAL ECONOMICS COURSES. THERE WAS NO SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCE IN THE VARIATION OF TEACHING PERFORMANCE AMONG TEACHERS GROUPED ACCORDING TO UNDERGRADUATE ACHIEVEMENT. A PREVIOUS ASSUMPTION THAT AVERAGE STUDENTS ARE THE BEST TEACHERS WAS NOT SUSTAINED. (JM)
