Teacher Selection: The relationships Between Selected Factors and the Rated Effectiveness of Second-Year Teachers.
Arend, Paul J.
This study sought to determine the relationships between the rated performance effectiveness of the strongest and weakest newly employed teachers in their second year of teaching and selected characteristics of data available in their credentials utilized for their selection. The characteristics selected were prior references, interview scores, place of interview, interviewer, degree granting college, degree level, years of teaching experience, undergraduate college grade-point average, location of student-teaching experience, sex, race, marital status, age, and geographic administrative area of present teaching position. The ratings of effectiveness were determined by principals and supervisors. From a total of 925 second-year teachers, 68 (7 percent) were rated as ineffective. Although there appeared to be no significant relationships between the majority of factors considered during the selection process and whether a teacher was rated most or least effective, a higher proportion of ineffective teachers were assigned without complete credentials. A short bibliography is provided. (Author)
