A Study of Selected Teacher Characteristics Valued by Arkansas Public School Administrators.
Calvery, Robert; And Others
Teacher selection is a complex set of procedures that may be influenced by administrators' beliefs and values. This paper presents findings of a study that identified the teacher characteristics most valued by Arkansas public school administrators. Data were gathered during the 1995-96 school year through a survey of 40 area school administrators who were asked to rate teacher-evaluation criteria in the following five areas: teacher abilities, school management, personal qualities, professional and social traits, and verification of information. The survey elicited a 75 percent rate of return. Administrators most valued human relations with peers, attitude, dependability, appearance, and professional knowledge. The data showed a high level of agreement among administrators about the importance and accessibility of factors commonly associated with teacher selection. (LMI)
