The Effects of Various Attitude Congruence Conditions on Teacher Selection Decisions.
Merritt, Daniel L.; And Others
This study focused on the relationships between attitude congruence and the selector's decisions about teacher candidates. Selectors rated a teacher applicant as part of a simulated teacher selection situation. Applicants were represented by written information in which the proportion of attitude congruence with the selector and the relevance of the attitudes to the vacancy were varied. The data indicated that the selector's decisions about teacher candidates are influenced by the proportion of congruent attitudes rather than by the relevance of the attitudes to the position vacancy. The implications of the findings for teacher preparation programs and teacher recruitment are discussed. (Author)
