Teacher Effectiveness Training and Pupil Attitude.
Nummela, Renate; Avila, Donald
This study focuses upon Thomas Gordon's Teacher Effectiveness Training (TET) as it affects student attitudes. Of the 104 third, fourth and fifth graders who participated in the study, 48 were students of teachers who volunteered to participate in a TET workshop and agreed to use the TET model throughout the school year. The remaining 56 students (of teachers not trained in TET) served as a control group. In September, 1977, during the second and third week of classes all subjects were given the Battle Student Attitude Scale (BSAS) which consists of 60 items measuring attitudes toward self, other students, teachers, school administrators, and the school as a whole. Posttests on the BSAS were collected in March of the following year. Results obtained from anlaysis of the pretest and the posttest showed that students of teachers who used the TET in the classroom experienced an increase in positive attitudes toward school as a whole and toward their teachers in particular.
