Assessing Inservice Training Needs through Teacher Responses.
Ingersoll, Gary M.
The focus of this study was to develop a reliable method through which a variety of school systems could gather data on inservice needs and use that data to augment inservice planning. The subjects of the survey were 745 elementary, junior high, and senior high school teachers from four school districts. Certain generalizations and suggestions emerged from the data. First, the teachers in this survey expressed a need for skills training in the affective domain. Second, differences in responses of elementary or secondary school teachers, or between teachers of greater or lesser experience, clearly support differentiated training within inservice training. Implications for the use of such information in making decisions for inservice training and future development are proposed. A bibliography and appendix illustrating teacher responses are included.
