Peer Judgments of Teaching Competence as a Function of Field-Independence and Dogmatism.
Victor, James B.
The first aim of this study is to see whether high dogmatic and field dependent measures, taken together, are related to being liked by others in a teaching situation. The second aim is to develop a reliable sociometric measure of peer judgement that would tap the interpersonal domain within the context of professional duties. The Hidden Figures Test (Jackson, Messick and Myers, 1964) and the Dogmatism Scale (Rokeach, 1960) were administered to 50 master degree candidates for an intern training program for teachers of emotionally disturbed children. After one semester, sociometric data was collected. Results show that field-independence and dogmatism, when considered in concert, provide useful information concerning those teachers who are viewed positively by their peers. Interns with the particular combination of high dogmatism-field dependent scores were chosen less frequently by their peers, while those who scored low dogmatism-field dependent were chosen more often.
