Predicting Teaching Performance: A Multivariate Investigation.
Daniel, Larry G.
Previous research using various measures of teacher quality has largely failed to investigate the relationships among such assessment measures using multivariate procedures. Multivariate investigations are essential in studies of teacher competence because these methods view various competency variables in the larger contexts to which researchers generalize their results One approach to conducting such an investigation is demonstrated through canonical correlation analysis of data from 496 student teachers enrolled at a comprehensive university in Mississippi. Measures of teacher knowledge, subtests of the National Teacher Examinations (NTE), and overall college grade point average (GPA) served as predictor variables. Measures of teaching performance, scores across several ratings on the Mississippi Teacher Assessment Instruments, and final student teaching grade served as criterion variables. The analysis yielded one statistically significant canonical root. Results suggest that the NTE subtest scores are not very good predictors of teaching performance, but that students' GPAs are relatively good predictors. (Author/SLD)
