The Effects of Training on Increased Use of and Correlation Between Higher Order Classroom and Test Questioning Behavior.
Derhammer, John L.; Cormier, William H.
This controlled study investigaged the effects of training, with and without feedback, on increasing teachers' higher-order classroom and test questions and improving the correlation between these two kinds of questioning behavior. A Questions Analyzer was used to obtain the data from 12 elementary school teachers in Tennessee. Classroom and test questioning behaviors were analyzed using analysis of variance and coefficient of correlations. Results indicated that training significantly increased the incidence of, and correlation between, higher-order classroom and test questioning behaviors in both trained groups. The findings emphasize the importance of training teachers in the use of higher-order questions. (A 20-item bibliography is included.) (Author)
