ERIC Clearinghouse on Educational Management, Eugene, OR.
The recruitment and selection of teachers are addressed in this summary of 11 journal articles and documents which are available through ERIC (Educational Resources Information Center). The first entry examines the selection process of hiring new teachers, focusing on tools used in making selection decisions. The second abstract deals with the hypothesis that opinions of the supervisors of elementary education students are more accurate predictors of rapid employment than are cognitive tests. The third outlines a policy created to select new teachers incorporating an applicant questionnaire, teaching demonstration, and group interviews. The fourth abstract focuses on the involvement of teachers in the selection of teachers. Entry five emphasizes the use of credentials and the interview in the teacher selection process. Entry six summarizes processes and focuses on interrelated skills. The seventh entry examines the needs of rural school districts in recruitment. The eighth notes a study finding that informal, personal selection methods may be as effective as variable screening methods. Entry nine reviews studies on teacher selection and suggests radical changes to maintain educational quality in the future. The tenth entry examines a laboratory simulation of how applicants react to recruitment and selection procedures. The final entry presents a review of legal issues relating to teacher selection. Document and article ordering procedures are included. (WTH)
