SITUATIONAL FACTORS TO BE CONSIDERED IN THE SELECTION PROCESS.
PALMER, DALE H.
THIS PAPER DISCUSSES CERTAIN SITUATIONAL FACTORS CONSIDERED IMPORTANT TO THE TEACHER SELECTION PROCESS. THE DISCUSSION FOCUSES ON THREE MAJOR TOPICS--(1) IDENTIFICATION OF SITUATIONAL FACTORS RELEVANT TO TEACHER SELECTION, (2) SITUATIONAL FACTORS PRESENTED TO SUBJECTS IN AN EXPERIMENT CONDUCTED AT THE UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON, AND (3) POTENTIAL MANIPULATION OF SITUATIONAL FACTORS IN OTHER EXPERIMENTS ON TEACHER SELECTION. THE IMPORTANCE OF SITUATIONAL FACTORS TO TEACHER BEHAVIOR AND TEACHER EFFECTIVENESS IS EMPHASIZED, AND TEACHER BEHAVIOR IN SITUATIONAL CONTEXTS IS RELATED TO THE TEACHER SELECTION PROCESS. THE IDENTIFICATION OF SITUATIONAL FACTORS FOR THE EXPERIMENT IN THE SIMULATED SITUATION INCLUDES ASPECTS OF THE LOCATION AND PHYSICAL SETTING OF THE COMMUNITY, THE NATURE OF THE COMMUNITY, THE SCHOOL DISTRICT, THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL, AND THE VACANCY ITSELF. IT IS FOUND THAT THE INTERACTING EFFECTS OF SITUATIONAL VARIABLES COMPRISING A GIVEN SITUATION NECESSITATE CRITERIA OF TEACHER SELECTION BASED ON THOSE BEHAVIORS DESIGNATED BY THE LOCAL SCHOOL DISTRICT AS DESIRABLE FOR THAT SITUATION. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED TO THE ANNUAL MEETING OF THE AMERICAN EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH ASSOCIATION (CHICAGO, FEBRUARY 8-10, 1968). (HW)
