Personality and Belief System Correlates of Cognitive Outcomes for Teacher Education Students: John Dewey and the NTE.
Elmore, Randy F.; Ellett, Chad D.
Relationships were examined between scores on the Sixteen Personality Factor Questionnaire, Personal Beliefs Inventory, Teaching Practices Inventory, Rokeach Dogmatism Scale, National Teacher Examinations (NTE), and grade point average (GPA) for 55 teacher education students. Significant correlations were established between the cognitive outcomes (NTE and GPA) and personality factors C (emotional vs. mature), L (trusting vs. suspicious), O (placid vs. apprehensive), and Q4 (relaxed vs. tense). High negative correlations were found for the cognitive outcomes and the dogmatism scale, and high positive correlations for the Teaching Practices Inventory (agreement with Dewey's educational philosophy) and the cognitive outcomes.
