Personal Characteristics Associated with Effective Teaching.
Peck, Robert F.; Veldman, Donald J.
Objective scores and judges' ratings, both based on a complex personal assessment battery, were correlated with a pupil-gain criterion of teaching effectiveness and with a number of observationally derived measures of classroom teaching behavior. Twenty-seven primary teachers were studied who had demonstrated consistent patterns of pupil gain over the previous three years, varying substantially in the degree of gain achieved. The relationships of the assessment-based measures to the teaching effectiveness measures are described. In addition, the objective assessment scores and the judgmental ratings are compared in their predictive power. (Author)
