The Development of the PLAN TOS: A Teacher Observation Scale for Individualized Instruction.
Quirk, Thomas J.; And Others
A Teacher Observation Scale (TOS) was developed in order to compare the behavior of teachers using the material of project PLAN with those using conventional insturctional systems. The scale listed 17 categories of teacher behavior grouped under the headings: individual instruction, group discussion, behavior modification, systems management, and miscellaneous. Two groups of observers were trained to use the TOS and were assigned to observe PLAN and control teachers in schools in the San Francisco Bay Area. This report contains an analysis of the data collected, a discussion of its implication for project PLAN, a reference list, and various supplementary data tables. (JY)
