A Study of Self-Evaluation Applied to In-Service Education.
Jensen, Paul H.
A study was conducted by the Corvallis School District, Oregon, to examine the effectiveness of the use of video tape recording as a self-instructional inservice training tool and as a means of bringing about change in teacher behavior. Over a two-year period, 65 elementary school teachers were randomly assigned to one of five treatment groups formed from the presence or absence of three conditions: (1) self-observation via video tape recording, (2) overt self-evaluation during self-observation, and (3) a workshop in observational and evaluational techniques. Analysis of variance, discriminatory analysis, and chi square techniques were used to analyze the data collected from behavioral measures and questionnaires. It was found that emphasis on individual goal setting combined with video self-evaluation effected moderate changes in teaching methods and attitudes. (Appended are a 27-item list of references, a 193-item annotated bibliography, illustrations of the coding results of the interaction analysis on a one-hour video tape, quotations from teacher observations, a teacher questionnaire and observer rating scale, an organization chart, a list of video tape equipment, a description of the project environment, and tables and graphs. SP 001 634,"An Overview of the Teaching Research System for the Description of Teacher Behavior in Context" by H. Del Schalock, is a related document.) (Author/SG)
