They also sat a multiple-choice test about basic concepts in descriptive statistics and probability. The results from the first stage indicated that student teaches generally had positive attitudes toward learning statistics but not toward the introductory statistics course which was described as dull or uninspiring and too mathematical.

This study has produced evidence that Oregon industrial education students taught by non-degree instructors are generally not receiving inferior instruction compared with those being taught by teachers with a baccalaureate degree. Generally, these findings indicated the weaknesses of the traditional format of teaching introductory statistics course through the lecture method.

Based on the findings from the first stage, interactive statistics learning materials employing the cooperative learning method were developed in the second stage and given to an experimental group of student teachers from five teacher training colleges. Selected Findings 1. This probably stemmed from the difficulty in understanding certain statistical concepts and perhaps the statistic courses that they had attended did not provide them with a good training. Analysis of Data The analysis of variance was used to analyze the statistical significance of the hypotheses concerning instructors' attitude toward teaching and performance in the classroom. The findings from the test also revealed that misconceptions in some statistical concepts still persisted and that the student teachers appeared to have forgotten some, if not all, statistical subject matter that they had previously learned in the statistics lectures. The results from the first stage indicated that student teaches generally had positive attitudes toward learning statistics but not toward the introductory statistics course which was described as dull or uninspiring and too mathematical. Industrial education instructors having completed more than 24 hours formal preparation but less than a baccalaureate degree had a higher correlation of attitudes toward teaching compared with teaching performance than the two other experimental groups. Is there a relationship between a teacher's attitude toward teaching and his performance in the classroom based on the amount of formal education he has completed? Item Type:.

The findings from the test also revealed that misconceptions in some statistical concepts still persisted and that the student teachers appeared to have forgotten some, if not all, statistical subject matter that they had previously learned in the statistics lectures.

From these ratings, ten responses were randomly selected for scoring.

Effects of teachers attitude on students performance pdf

A total of returns were complete and usable in the study. This probably stemmed from the difficulty in understanding certain statistical concepts and perhaps the statistic courses that they had attended did not provide them with a good training. Pfahl, Alvin Kenneth, Abstract Purpose of the Study The study was designed to determine whether the amount of formal education industrial education teachers have completed does affect their 1 attitude toward teaching and 2 performance in the classroom. In addition, the working memory capacity and the degree of field dependency of the student teachers were also measured. From these ratings, ten responses were randomly selected for scoring. Is there a relationship between a teacher's attitude toward teaching and his performance in the classroom based on the amount of formal education he has completed? They also sat a multiple-choice test about basic concepts in descriptive statistics and probability. In the first stage, factors that might affect the learning of introductory statistics for student teachers were investigated. Based on the findings from the first stage, interactive statistics learning materials employing the cooperative learning method were developed in the second stage and given to an experimental group of student teachers from five teacher training colleges. The other groups had very low correlation. From the test, misconceptions about certain concepts in basic descriptive statistics and probability were identified. The purpose of this study was to determine if teachers with differing amount of formal education have a varying attitude toward teaching and whether this affects their teaching performance.

From the test, misconceptions about certain concepts in basic descriptive statistics and probability were identified. A post-questionnaire and a test based on the materials learned were given to both groups after the completion of the second stage study. These correlations may reflect the nature of the test materials as much as the nature of statistics.

The teachers' classroom performance was student assessed using a questionnaire with questions designed for this purpose. Pfahl, Alvin Kenneth, Abstract Purpose of the Study The study was designed to determine whether the amount of formal education industrial education teachers have completed does affect their 1 attitude toward teaching and 2 performance in the classroom.

questionnaire for teachers performance

Another group of student teachers called the comparison group from the same colleges were taught the same materials but through the traditional lecture method. It also appeared that learning statistics based on the cooperative learning method was more favoured by the male student teachers, the Non-Mathematics Education group and the field dependent student teachers.

Item Type:.

Effect of teaching method on student performance

The findings revealed that a majority of the student teacher did not have confidence in teaching statistics. From these ratings, ten responses were randomly selected for scoring. Another group of student teachers called the comparison group from the same colleges were taught the same materials but through the traditional lecture method. In the third stage, opinions were sought from the student teachers in their final semester of study, concerning their readiness to teach statistics in school. Perhaps, not surprisingly, the experimental group performed better than the comparison group in the test based on the learning materials. The results of this study indicated there was no difference in attitude toward teaching among the experimental groups. Generally, these findings indicated the weaknesses of the traditional format of teaching introductory statistics course through the lecture method. Resource Type.
