The Results of the 1991-92 Teacher Follow-up Survey (TFS) Reinterview and Extensive Reconciliation. Working Paper Series.
Jenkins, Cleo R.; Wetzel, Angela-Jo
The two papers in this volume are two parts of a report on the results of the 1991-92 Teacher Follow-up Survey Reinterview and Extensive Reconciliation, a follow-up to the Schools and Staffing Survey. Part 1 (three-fourths of the report), "The Results of the 1992 Teacher Follow-up Survey Reinterview and Extensive Reconciliation," discusses the differences between the original Teacher Follow-up Survey and the reinterview and reconciliation designed to measure response variance estimates. In general, the reinterview and reconciliation did not explain differences between the original and the reinterview responses. Why this occurred, and how to remedy it for future surveys are discussed. Part II, by the same authors, "An Evaluation of the Methodology Utilized for the 1991-92 Teacher Follow-up Survey (TFS) Reinterview and Extensive Reconciliation: Part Two of a Two-Part Report," focuses on the reinterview and the extensive reconciliation methodology, and offers suggestions to improve the methodology, complementing the first part, which concentrated on improvement of the questionnaire. (Contains 61 tables in all and 15 references for each paper.) (SLD)
