How Teachers View the Effective Teacher.
Jenkins, Joseph R.; Bausell, R. Barker
This study investigated what professional educators believe are the appropriate bases for judging the effectiveness of the teacher. A random sample of all public school teachers and administrators (N=264) in the state of Delaware were instructed to rate each of 16 criteria "according to its importance in determining teacher effectiveness." The survey instrument included an assortment of criteria: product, process, and presage. The responses of elementary, middle, and secondary school teachers and principals were compared. Results indicated remarkably similar responses between each group. Criteria receiving the highest rating was the teacher's relationship with his class and flexibility. Years of teaching experience received the lowest rating. (Conclusions are indicated; a one-item bibliography is included.) (MJM)
