A Brief Review of Studies of Problems of Teachers Conducted by Donald R. Cruickshank with Others with Particular Attention to Instrument Development.
Cruickshank, Donald R.; Myers, Betty
There is a common assertion that if you can find out what teachers' problems are, you have gained enormously valuable insight into their world and are in a position to help them at some level to consider and thus accept, reduce, or eliminate those problems. This assertion has provided the basis for studies over the past 10 years. This report outlines several of these studies and the instruments used in each. The instruments include (1) the Perceived Problems Inventory (PPI) designed for beginning elementary and junior high school teachers; (2) the My Biggest Problem Today Inventory (MBPTI), a revision of the PPI used for inner-city elementary school teachers; (3) the Teacher Problem Inventory (TPI) for inner-city elementary school teachers; (4) a revision of the TPI for rural disadvantaged elementary teachers; and (5) the Teacher Problems Check List (TPCL) for secondary teachers with a revision for elementary teachers. Samples of each of these instruments are included. (JMF)
