An Analysis of the Oral Questioning Process and Certain Causal Relationships in the Elementary School Science Classroom.
Bassett, Jimmy Floyd
The purpose of this study was to analyze the oral questioning process in elementary school classrooms and to attempt to determine the relationship of certain selected factors to the oral questioning process. The sample consisted of 60 elementary school science teachers teaching the fourth, fifth, and sixth grades. Questions were classified into one of the seven categories identified by Kleinman. It was concluded that the variables of teacher age, years of teaching experience, academic rank, and academic preparation related significantly to the types of oral classroom questions asked by elementary school teachers. In general, it was concluded that characteristics of the classroom teacher had a more predictive relationship for identifying certain types of oral classroom questioning behavior of teachers than did administrative variables studied.
