Towards a Model of Teacher Behavior and Student Achievement.
Anderson, Barry D.; Kaplan, Judith
Three procedures are examined that educational researchers can use to analyze quantitatively the extent to which modifications of specific teacher behaviors lead to changes in student achievement. The task requires decent descriptions of the behaviors, appropriate statistical tools and measures of student outcomes that are worth while examining. The data, collected in the course of an evaluation of the relationship between the organizational structure of schools and student achievement, is not entirely appropriate for the issues dealt with here. Therefore, paths are suggested that this research might take in the future: (1) it is possible, using multiple regression analysis, to construct models of teacher behavior that reflect the view that some set of teacher behaviors affect student outcomes, and (2) these models can be applied at least three distinct ways, depending on the kinds of assumptions that one is willing to make about the data and the kinds of questions that one wishes to address.
