The Contribution of Principal and Teacher Inputs to Student Achievement.
Teddlie, Charles; And Others
This study of school effects included unique teacher and principal variables: average faculty score on the National Teacher Examinations (NTE) Commons and area examinations, mean passing rate on the NTE of institutions the faculty attended, principal's percentile score on the NTE administration test, and principal's rating on school district interview. The results indicate that school characteristics could account for 8-21 percent of the variance in school achievement, which is somewhat higher than that usually reported. A regression analysis utilizing factors derived from a factor analysis indicate that preparation of faculty was a significant predictor for all three dependent variables. The important roles that teachers and principals play in determining student achievement scores were demonstrated in this study. (Author)
