Kindergarten Screening Predictive Inaccuracy: First-Grade Teacher Variability.
Fedoruk, Genevieve M.; Norman, Charles A.
Exceptional Children, v57 n3 p258-63 Dec-Jan 1990-91
The study evaluated how 21 first grade teachers differed in preferences, requirements, and expectations of students. Teachers ranked 86 student descriptors on a continuum of contributing to either student success or failure. Teachers were found to vary considerably in descriptor rankings, suggesting that teacher variations may be a factor in the predictive inaccuracy of kindergarten screening. (Author/DB)
