Teaching Effectiveness: Short Term Achievement Results.
Hett, Geoffrey G.
Six fourth- and fifth-grade classrooms of children were involved in three studies undertaken to measure the effectiveness of four sets of teaching behaviors on short-term student achievement gains. The following behaviors were considered: (1) sharing instructional objectives with students; (2) providing feedback emphasizing students' abilities; (3) conducting daily reviews for the purpose of relating the concepts and principles taught during the lesson; and (4) using formative quizzes to identify learning difficulties and follow up with appropriate corrective procedures. The research examined the effects of these procedures on the achievement of students in three subject areas: literature, social studies, and mathematics. Examination of the data and analysis of achievement scores in the various classes indicate that the use of instructional objectives, lesson reviews, ability praise, formative testing, and correctives are important instructional procedures and are related to student achievement.
