Selected Findings from Phase III-B. BTES. Beginning Teacher Evaluation Study. Supplement. Preliminary Version.
Fisher, Charles W.; And Others
This series of six papers concerning the Beginning Teacher Evaluation Study (BTES) starts with Teaching Behaviors, Academic Learning Time and Student Achievement: An Overview of Phase III-B of the Beginning Teacher Evaluation Study by the project director, Charles Fisher. As an introduction, it describes a model of classroom instruction based on the concept of student academic learning time (ALT) as a function of student entering characteristics (aptitude), and teaching behaviors and other classroom context variables. More precisely, ALT is student engagement time with relevant tasks which have a low error rate for that student. The remaining papers were: Methodological Issues and Concerns in Research on the BTES Classroom Learning Model by Leonard S. Cahen; Academic Learning Time and Achievement: The Validation of a Measure of Ongoing Student Engagement and Task Difficulty by Richard Marliave; How Teachers Produce "Academic Learning Time": Instructional Variables Related to Student Engagement by Nikola N. Filby; Changing Academic Learning Time: Clinical Interventions in Four Classrooms by David C. Berliner; and An Analysis of Instructional Time in Grade 2 Mathematics by Cahen and Fisher. An annotated bibliography of 57 documents related to the BTES is appended. (CTM)
