Modeling Achievement by Measuring the Enacted Instruction
Walkup, John R.; Jones, Ben S.
Online Submission
This article presents a mathematical algorithm that relates student achievement with directly observable, quantifiable teacher and student behaviors, producing a modified form of the Walberg model. The algorithm (1) expands the measurable factors that comprise the quality of instruction in a linear basis of research-based teaching components and techniques and (2) incorporates the quantity of instruction that is related to the timing of classroom processes. The role such a model can play in education reform and potential research is also discussed, as well as its potential use in classroom observation rubrics programmed on mobile devices. Researchers should use the algorithm to shift reform efforts toward the improvement of input processes (e.g., use of classroom time and use of effective questioning strategies) rather than output processes (e.g., assessments).
