Cruickshank, Donald R.
The author presents a brief statement giving reasons for followup studies of teacher problems and explains the procedure for conducting such studies, the instruments used for data collection, and the estimated costs of a follow-up program. The four reasons cited for investigating teacher problems are: (1) to expose teacher educators to current classroom problem situations; (2) to aid in curriculum revision; (3) to identify data useful for program development; and (4) for accreditation evidence. A brief overview of the follow-up procedure is presented, a comparison of two variations is made, and a detailed description of the steps that must be followed in order to do a study are provided. Instruments suggested for use are the Teacher Problems Checklist (Elementary Teacher and Secondary Teacher forms) and data sheets to accompany the Checklist. Estimates of cost for a follow-up study involving 750 respondents are given. Appendices include "My Biggest Problem Today Inventory,""How to Write Goal Statements," verb lists for writing problem statements, significant problems identified in the Teacher Problems Checklist, and interpretations of data from previous follow-up studies.
