Measuring the Educational Relevance of a Short-Term Training Program for Teachers.
Johnson, Raymond L.; And Others
A multiple time series design was used to test the effectiveness of short workshops for housewives recruited to teach basic reading to adults in bringing about changes in teacher attitudes and opinions. An attitude and opinion survey questionnaire comprising true-false items was given on three occasions, to all participants of a nine-hour workshop. All the participants answered the questionnaires at the beginning of the workshop but only the members of the experimental group answered them the second time after teaching a class. Sixteen of the 100 items showed significant shifts in responses between times one and two for the experimental group and fourteen for the control group, and virtually all the changes induced in the controls persisted at time three. However, the effects of the workshop were almost totally erased by the experiences in the classroom. (An appendix with an outline of the procedure is included). (nl)
