How research has changed American schools : a history from 1840 to the present by Robert Morris William Travers( Book )

8 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Modern educational research has its foundation in the fact finding techniques of the great educational organizers and administrators of the last century. Those individuals brought about the change from education administered in terms of tradition, to education administered in terms of knowledge. They created an atmosphere in education, accepting new ideas and encouraging innovation based on knowledge. That transition had to take place before the emerging new sciences, related to learning and development, could have their impact. This volume traces that transition through the following chapters: (1) American Builders of the Foundation for Educational Research; (2) New Lines of Scientific Discovery and Their Implications for Education; (3) Assessment and Evaluation; (4) Intelligence Tests and Their Impact on American Schools; (5) The Thorndike Sphere of Influence; (6) Judd and His Dream of a Psychology of School Subjects; (7) The Psychology of School Subjects; (8) Behaviorism and the Shadow of the Vienna Circle; (9) Child Development as a Basis for Education; (10) Economic Research and Education for Economic Change; (11) Research on Events in the Classroom; and (12) Recent Trends and Future Promises.

5 editions published in 1961 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There were three separate phases to this research--(1) instruments were designed to measure the needs of teachers in the categories mentioned above, (2) the methods of measuring teacher performance in the classroom were selected and applied, and (3) the relationships between the performance of the teachers in the classroom and the characteristics of the teachers were measured by the various testing devices. The subjects were two groups of utah teachers--77 from metropolitan school districts, grades k-6, and 41 from small town and rural areas, grades 1-5. the instruments designed were--(1) utah study of behavior, (2) test of personal preferences for educational objectives, (3) test of reactions to educational situations, (4) teacher preference schedule, (5) van pit series wishes test, (6) self-rating scale, and (7) individual background questionnaire. In addition, withall's technique of sampling verbal statements of teachers in the classroom and rating scale for recording the observers' assessment of 35 characteristics of the teacher classroom behaviors were used. Cooperation of the school district officials and teachers, observations of scientists in classrooms, and kits of tests for teachers were the methods used. Negative correlation between control and affiliation and achievement ratings by observers were found. Scores of teachers statements were substantially high. Recommendations were made for further study of teacher attitudes and training. (Gc)

The measurement of student adjustment and achievement by University of Michigan) Guidance Conference on the Measurement of Student Adjustment and Achievement (1947( )

6 editions published between 1949 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"The purpose of the Guidance Conference on the Measurement of Student Adjustment and Achievement, and hence of this volume, was to call the attention of guidance workers to the trends in student personnel work and to review the research and theory upon which the guidance process is based. Past accomplishments and future research needs were emphasized. Guidance in the schools can be accomplished through the appropriate distribution of students in the curriculum, through special curricular offerings, and through individual case work. In the modern school, guidance may be carried on through the method of the homeroom teacher and also through the specialist counselor. The objectives of the program are the same, however, without regard to the method employed. Some of the aims of the guidance program are to bring about personal adjustment of the student, to assist in the achievement of academic proficiency, and to predict the level of probable future success. How successfully these objectives are achieved can be determined through measurement and other evaluation techniques. During the past decade great stress has been placed on the nondirective method of counseling. The use of this highly individualized technique in case work has led counselors to lose sight of the implications of group tendencies, basic theories, and the importance of prediction. It has, therefore, seemed important to call attention again to the more objective approaches to the evaluation of guidance and achievement and to the need for basic research on these problems"--Foreword.
