Teachers' Judgments of Pupils' Dependence/Self-Reliance Characteristics Mode of Instruction and Their Relationship to Achievement.
Stiglmeier, Lois Mireault
This study investigated the relationship between teachers' judgments of students' instructional needs, the mode of instruction received by the student, and his academic achievement. The teachers were asked to judge 102 eighth-grade pupils on a self-reliance/dependence scale which had been developed for this study; the students had been in an individually diagnosed and prescribed mathematics program for three years. A Chi-Square analysis and Fisher Exact Probability Test were computed to determine the degree to which teachers discriminated in terms of judged personality and instructional treatment. A two-factor (treatment and judgment) analysis of covariance with three covariates (mental ability, reading ability, and mathematics ability) was employed for further analysis of the collected data. Statistical significance was established at the .05 level. No significant relationship was found to exist between the teachers' judged needs and the mode of instruction received by the learner nor was there any significant difference between the academic achievement of those pupils who were matched in terms of judged personality and mode of instruction and those mismatched in terms of judged personality and mode of instruction.
