A Diagnostic Test for Evaluating Pre-Service Science Teachers Use of Three Selected Teaching Skills.
Kuechler, Donald Albert
Reported is the development of an instrument to measure teaching skills of lesson orientation, verbal and written reinforcement, and lesson conclusion. Randomly selected pre-service science teachers were "visited" twice, once before skill training was given and once afterwards. Data gathered by videotape were subjected to an analysis of variance. Estimates of reliability were calculated to determine the number of times a teacher should be observed before it could be said whether or not he had the prescribed skills. NUMBERS WERE CALCULATED SIX TIMES FOR LESSON ORIENTATION, ONE TIME FOR VERBAL AND WRITTEN REINFORCEMENT, AND FIVE TIMES FOR LESSON CONCLUSION. The instrument designed seemed to be reliable and usable. (EB)
