A Comparison of the Ratings Given Ten Teacher Applicants By Ten Public School Administrators After a Traditional Interview and a Video-Tape Teaching Demonstration.
Grandgenett, Donald J.
This study determined if added information in the form of a 10-minute teaching demonstration on video tape would significantly change the ratings given 10 teacher candidates by 10 judges in an earlier 15-minute interview. The judges were members of the Omaha school system responsible for interviewing and hiring new teachers. Subjects were second-semester student teachers at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. Statistical results indicated that there were no significant differences between the ratings of judges using only the traditional interview method and the ratings of those benefiting from the additional video tape. However, the lack of agreement among the judges in ranking the candidates in both the interview and the videotaped demonstration may have been significant enough to mask any treatment effect of the video tape. A criterion, and evaluative check list, or some other rating process that has reliability, needs to be developed by school systems for the selection of teacher candidates.
