Predicting Teacher NTE Scores in Mathematics. Research Paper No. 15.
Stoller, Jane E.; Willson, Victor L.
Score on the Mathematics Test of the National Teacher Examinations (NTE) was the dependent variable in a stepwise multiple regression using personological variables of in-service teachers as regressors. Two variables--number of semester hours credit in mathematics, and grade level of teaching--accounted for 61 percent of the observed NTE score variance. Predicted and obtained NTE scores were compared for a trichotomous division of teachers into low, middle, and high achievement. The prediction seems adequate for use in classifying teachers by achievement in research studies without requiring costly and time-consuming testing. (Author/HM)
