Reliability Realized! Year Two of Clinical Practice Candidates Applying Action Research
Moffett, David W.; Zhou, Yunfang; Reid, Barbara K.
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Georgia Educational Research Association (Savannah, Georgia, Oct 23, 2009)
The Investigators studied effects of Candidates' 10 day unit plans of instruction through prescribed action research projects, across academic years 2007-2008 and 2008-2009. Results of the spring term '07-'08 Action Research projects informed the Unit in such a way that modifications were possible and made across programs. This resulted in further refinement of the "Unit Assessment 5" Effect on Student Learning Action Research project conducted by both student teachers and certification only interns in academic year 2008-2009. In the first term of the study reliability across rater and interraters was not realized. However, in term one of year two reliability was realized. Then, although reliability was realized in term two of year two, new issues arose and perennial issues continued. Discussion includes changes that likely led to reaching satisfactory reliability levels across rater and interrater, along with information regarding new, and ongoing, challenges faced by the Unit in continuously ensuring reliability.
