The purpose of this technical report is to summarize the research methodology of the Novice Teacher Study (NTS) strand of the Teacher Quality Partnership (TQP) research. The Ohio TQP embarked on a series of research studies to learn more about the characteristics of effective teachers and to identify the patterns of teacher performance in both novice and experienced teachers that commingle to enhance student achievement at different grade levels, in different subjects, and with different types of students. The report is divided into three sections: a brief description of TQP; a detailed description of the NTS research design and methodology; and concluding remarks related to the challenges of conducting field research as part of a large-scale research initiative. In preparing this technical report, we drew from artifacts documenting the research processes; from regional and national presentations; and from materials distributed to external audiences. Preliminary planning for the NTS began in 2004, but this report focuses on 2005-06 (pilot year) and 2006-08 (years 1 and 2). The following are appended: (1) Novice Teacher Study Novice Teacher Consent Form 2007-2008; (2) Consent to Participate in a Research Study--Novice Teachers; (3) Cycles at a Glance: TQP Novice Teacher Study NT--08; (4) NTS Data Collection 2007-08 Teacher Profile: Cycle 1; (5) School Physical Environment Checklist; (6) CLASS Observation Record--Elementary; (7) CLASS Observation Record--Secondary: CLASS Notes Sheet--TQP Data Collection NT08 (2007-08); (8) Post-observation Interview; and (9) Novice Teacher Study Codebook. (Contains 3 footnotes and 3 figures.) [This report was produced by the Teacher Quality Partnership.
