Goal Oriented Teaching Exercise (G.O.T.E.): Methodology for Measuring the Effects of Teaching Strategies.
Hill, Russell A.; And Others
To test the effectiveness of the Goal Oriented Teaching Exercise (GOTE), a six-day unit for measuring the effects of teaching strategies, four junior high school teachers received a teachers manual, information on instructional goals and subject content, and sample test questions all keyed to a content grid (formed by six content topics and two instructional goals--recall and application) for a teaching unit. Each teacher administered a pretest, also keyed to the grid, to students in two of his classes, and planned and taught lessons over a four-day period to one of these classes for recall and to the other for application. These lessons were observed and rated using the Observation Schedule and Record (OScAR) 5V. On the sixth day, a posttest (also keyed to the content grid) was administered to the students, and results were compared with those of the pretest revealing differences in pupil learning by teachers and also by goal. Audio tapes of the lessons were used to code psychological-social behavior of teachers (using OScAR), content covered, and type of instructional goal, and a visual display of interaction between these three types of teacher behavior was prepared. Teacher verbalism frequencies were tallied into content grid cells to show content coverage, and analyzed by goal, teacher, and observer visit revealing significant goal, visit, and observer, revealing 21 keys which reliably identified significant differences between teachers. (Appended are the 68 items of the OScAR 5V.) (SM)
