Indicators for Learning and Teacher Competencies in the Basic Skills: Mathematics. Florida Educational Research and Development Council, Inc., Research Bulletin, Volume 13, Number 1, Summer 1979.
Powell, William R.; Bolduc, Elroy J.
The purpose of this report is to identify the school setting variables and the teacher competencies which contribute to achievement in the basic skills in mathematics. The search for indicators of competence was accomplished by literature review, expert opinion, research data, and identified student outcomes. The objective was to identify those observable classroom behaviors whose presence or absence is likely to affect student performance. Two types of competency indicators are identified: (1) cognitive-based; and (2) performance-based. Specific instructional competencies are identified and stated in each of the basic skills areas. Five general behaviors were used to group these specific competencies. They are: (1) diagnosis and prescription; (2) organization and management; (3) instruction; (4) growth patterns; and (5) evaluation. (MP)
