A Discriminant Analysis of a Teaching Model Using Three Levels of Teaching Experience.
Young, James R.
Using a specific teaching model as the criterion, three groups of elementary school teachers with differing levels of teaching experience were observed with a microcomputer recorder while teaching in their classroom settings. A step-wise discriminant analysis isolated specific motivational and instructional techniques from the model which produced a distinctive pattern of separation between the three groups. A classification analysis correctly identified 63 percent of all the observation cases by their teacher group. An analysis of recurring patterns of teaching, based on this model, also clearly indicated unique motivational and instructional techniques between the three levels of teaching experience. (Author)
