Filby, Nikola N.; Fisher, Charles W.
This report provides descriptive statistical information from Phase III-B of the Beginning Teacher Evaluation Study. Within the sample of second and fifth grade teachers in classrooms in public schools in California, approximately six students were identified as target students to be studied during the school year. These students were observed approximately weekly during the period from January to May. The observers recorded student time within the subject matter areas of reading and mathematics, focusing on the content of student instructional tasks, the degree of difficulty of instructional tasks, and student engagement in those tasks. Academic Learning Time (ALT) is defined as time on tasks of intermediate difficulty for the students, directly related to the measures of achievement under study, during which a student is engaged in the instructional task.
