How Outstanding Teachers View Themselves as Persons.
Dieter, Donn
This paper reported on a study made by the North Carolina Department of Public instruction in which outstanding teachers evaluated themselves on a variety of personal traits. Participants in the program were 43 recipients of outstanding biology teaching awards from the National Association of Biology Teachers. The teachers were asked to self-administer the Gough Adjective Checklist, a collection of 300 adjectives which could be applied as descriptions of one's self. As a result of research studies using the checklist, the test authors had developed 24 separate scales containing groups of related objectives. The scale purported to measure such personality traits as self confidence, personal adjustment, self control and dominance. Teacher responses on eleven scales were high enough to satisfy chi-square levels of significance of .01. In order of decreasing values, these were/ achievement, endurance, order, intraception, dominance, nurturance, defensiveness, personal adjustment, favorable, self confidence, and self control.
