The Application of Attribution Theory to Educational Evaluation.
Rice, Marion
The importance of out-of-role behavior in teacher evaluation was investigated. Sixty administrators were presented one of two variations of a teacher's application form from which they assessed the personality traits of the teacher and indicated their interest in interviewing the teacher. A multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA) revealed that altering responses for out-of-role behavior (positive vs. negative) resulted in significantly lower trait-ratings and likelihood of an interview for the teacher with negative out-of-role behavior than for the teacher with positive out-of-role behavior. This finding is consistent with the theoretical expectations. The importance of this finding for administrative accountability is discussed. (Author)
