Teacher Effects on Student Achievement and Self-Esteem.
Peck, Robert F.; And Others
Effects were studied of 12 teacher and 11 student characteristics (including SES and ethnicity) on 7 student outcomes--cognitive, affective and coping skills. Fifty-three sixth grade teachers and 1,190 Black, Chicano and Anglo students participated. A series of covariance and regression analyses showed significant curvilinear and interaction effects, after true-score and unit-of-analysis corrections. This paper reports on the invalidity of a standardized achievement test as a measure of gain, or of teacher effects; and on several teacher-student interaction effects on self-esteem, including ethnic differences in reactions to teaching.
