Using Within-Unit Behavior of Teachers to Inform the School-Level Analysis: Approaches to Data Analysis in Project MITT.
Jovick, Thomas D.
The purpose of this report by the staff of Management Implications of Team Teaching (MITT) was to explain the use of unit-level analysis to get a more exact characterization of the general innovative phenomena previously observed in unitized schools. The report examines three central variables that describe involvement of the teaching staff in the innovation--collegial decision-making, instructional interdependence among teachers, and reciprocated communication among teachers. Individual chapters explain (1) how the outcome variables were arrived at, (2) how the effects of unitization on teacher involvement were arrived at, (3) how unit-level indices on three variables (team management, instructional interdependence, and communication) were formulated, and (4) how the analysis incorporating unit characteristics concerning the three main variables were formulated and their meaning.
