Evaluation of a Diagnostic Instrument of Supervision.
Seager, G. Bradley, Jr.
Instructional supervision is regarded as a resource to be managed by teachers for the improvement of instruction. Major problems in research on teaching effectiveness--operational definition of teaching effectiveness; systematic description and observation of teaching behavior; and systematic modification of teaching behavior in specified directions--are discussed. The Diagnostic Instrument of Supervision (DIOS), which employs student responses, is designed to identify strengths and weaknesses in the classroom to facilitate instructional improvement. Its development and evaluation are described. It is concluded that while teachers and supervisors use DIOS results in their planning, they have difficulty effecting changes which provide more favorable student responses. The instrument, item scores, and a report to the teacher which presents and explains DIOS results are included. (PR)
