Houston Needs Assessment System. Needs Assessment Results, Teacher Competency Analysis, Dallas Independent School District.
Bain, Richard J.; And Others
Two premises underly this study of the self-assessed perceptions of teachers of the Dallas Independent School District relative to a set of 33 competencies, namely that: (a) different teachers demonstrate varying levels of competency; and (b) teachers as professionals are responsible for their own improvement. The purpose of the study was to provide a basis for the development of self-improvement programs and inservice programs which will meet the needs of teachers. Teachers rated themselves using the Teacher Competency Inventory (TCI), which contains three parts: (a) a list of 33 competencies, (b) lists of subcompetencies, and (c) sets of descriptors or indicators which range from adequate performance to expert performance for each competency. The listed competencies focus on designing and evaluating, interaction, and professional behavior. Results of the survey are presented for the entire school district and separately for individual schools according to four types of analyses: (a) emphasis on the competencies perceived to be the weakest on the current level rating, (b) emphasis on the competencies which teachers give the highest desired level rating, (c) emphasis on the competencies with the greatest mean difference between current and desired competency levels, and (d) emphasis on the competencies which have the greatest change in rank as determined by rankings of current and desired level based on current and desired means for each competency.
