Beginning Teacher Evaluation Study: Phase II, 1973-74, Final Report: Volume V.3. Historical Data Study.
Wheeler, Patricia; Elias, Patricia J.
The Beginning Teacher Evaluation Study (BTES), Phase II, was a research project on effective teaching behavior--what teachers do that significantly affects what and how pupils learn. The purposes of Phase II were to (1) develop an assessment system for measuring teacher and pupil behaviors and other factors which could influence each of them and their interrelationships and (2) generate hypotheses about the interrelationships among teacher and pupil behaviors and related factors. Forty-one second grade and 54 fifth grade experienced teachers participated in the study. The purpose of this volume of the final report was to assess the stability of teacher output in terms of student achievement during and prior to Phase II of the study. The procedure involved the collection of achievement data, specifically skills on norm-referenced tests for students in the classrooms of the sample teachers for the previous two years. The limited historical data available from BTES classrooms and schools suggest that it is inappropriate to formulate any hypotheses about the stability of past teacher performance over time in terms of accessible information about pupil achievement.
