A Study of the Construct Validity of the Interactive Computer Interview System (ICIS) Using Student Evaluations as the Outcome Measure

ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, University of Kansas
The primary objective of this study was to compare the individual teacher interview scores from the Interactive Computer Interview System (ICIS) with their students' responses to "The Steps to Excellence Student Questionnaire". Specifically, the study examined the correlation among the teacher interviews across four themes of the ICIS ("Knowledge of Content," "Knowledge of Teaching," "Knowledge of Students" and "Working with Others scales") to high school student perceptions of their teachers using "The Steps to Excellence Student Questionnaire." Forty high school teachers were interviewed using the ICIS. Two hundred student perception surveys were collected to determine a mean score per teacher. A Pearson correlation was calculated between the score a teacher received on the ICIS and the student perception score to determine if there was a relationship between the two ratings. The research indicated significant correlations between ICIS scores and student perception scores. A strong correlation (0.635) at the 0.01 level was observed between the ICIS total and student perception survey. High correlations were also found at the 0.01 level when examining "Knowledge of Students" (0.617), "Knowledge of Content" (0.539) and "Knowledge of Teaching" (0.532). Moderate to strong correlations existed when examining "Working with Others" (0.494) at the 0.01 level as well. Additionally, multiple regression analyses were performed to determine how well student perception scores could be predicted by teacher ICIS scores as well as other demographic information. It was determined that total ICIS score was more important in predicting student perception scores than teacher age and student GPA.
