Pupil Perceptions of Teacher Presage and Process Variables and their Relationship to Pupil Perceptions of Instructional Effectiveness.
Jamieson, Judith L.; Brooks, Douglas M.
Five hundred and twenty-nine science students, clustered into teacher-determined ability level groups, were queried in order to obtain ratings of fifteen teacher presage characteristics and nine process variables. The Classroom Teacher Inventory (CTI) was used. Results indicate significant discriminant functions between effective and ineffective instructors, as well as between pupil perceptions of teacher presage and process characteristics by student ability level. The study suggests that high-ability students may place a greater value on teachers' subject area training, while low-ability students may place the emphasis on the teachers' ability to develop rapport with students.
