Texas Junior High School Study: Teacher Self-Reports and Student Outcomes. Appendix A, Examples of Interview and Questionnaire.
Evertson, Carolyn M.; And Others
The primary emphasis of the Texas Junior High School Study was the investigation of process-outcome relationships in 136 junior high school math and English classes. A total of 68 teachers were observed in nine junior high schools in a large urban school district. Teachers also responded to a questionnaire and an interview focusing on presage variables such as teachers' beliefs, expectations, assumptions about teaching, and self-reports of instructional practices. Two outcome measures were used: an achievement test reflecting the subject matter taught, and student ratings of teachers. The appendix presents the questionnaire to which the teachers responded, and the interview used along with the codable responses given by the teachers. (Author/BW)
