Students at risk : a review of Australian literature, 1980-1994 by Margaret Batten( Book )

4 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This literature review compiled a survey of Australian research related to identification of students at risk and school-related programs which respond to these risks. Thus, two major components of this report are titled "Student Retention and Risk Factors" and "Programs for Students at Risk." Students at risk were defined as those who left before completing Year 12. In part I, coverage of references on retention is followed by a description of risk factors and ways in which they are associated with or causally related to early school leaving and under-achievement. References to literature on retention are considered in relation to the individual student, the family, the school, and society. The relationship of risk factors to educational outcomes, and ways potential early leavers are identified are discussed. Part ii focuses on school-based programs. Attention focuses generally on students at risk, but reference is made to particular risk factors and certain groups. It concludes with a discussion of characteristics of successful programs. Part iii draws together threads of the review in terms of key issues in educational provision for students at risk that have emerged from the literature. (Jbj)
The quality of school life by Trevor Williams( Book )

1 edition published in 1981 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Following several "quality of life" models and a model of schooling, researchers developed a "quality of school life" model with four dimensions, including general satisfaction, positive affect, negative affect, and domains specific to education. The domains relate to students' personal experiences regarding particular school functions and comprise status achievement (related to schools' supervision function), identity development (related to socialization), feelings of adventure in learning (related to instruction), and provision for future opportunities (related to certification). To test this model, the researchers twice surveyed approximately 1,000 15-year-old students in 250 public and private secondary schools in Australia. Statistical analysis using congeneric testing and factor analysis led to a refined model with improved statistical reliability and validity. The refined model of the quality of school life embraced six factors, including general well-being, negative affect, teacher effects, future opportunities, and status and identity feelings.

Perceptions of the quality of school life : a case study of schools and students by Margaret Batten( Book )

4 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The monograph reports on the case study work that accompanied the development of a measure of the quality of school life for students, with a particular focus on the differences between schools and between year levels in the four scales covering the domains of schooling: status, identity, adventure, and opportunity. Questionnaires, group discussions and individual interviews were used with a class group from year levels 9-12 in seven schools and a similar sized group of exstudents to explore the processes at work within a school that influence student satisfaction. The most important factor in determining the quality of school life for students in all four domains of schooling proved to be the nature of the teacher student relationship. With regard to year level differences, it was found that self confidence increased and relations with teachers improved as students grew older, but belief in the usefulness and value of schooling decreased with age

One of the programs chosen for evaluation was the Development Program. This report discusses the design and significance of the Program itself, the implementation of Schools Commission emphases in the program, several school-centered teacher development projects, and the parameters and value of several long-term courses that emerged from the Program operation. Appendixes include material concerning: Commonwealth funding for Development Program purposes, teacher evaluation, inservice education, professional associations in Australia, the Southern Teachers Centre, the In-Depth Curriculum Studies Program, and the Townsville College of Advanced Education.

Gender and school education by Cherry W Collins( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Gender and School Education study was undertaken to collect baseline data against which progress in implementing the National Policy for the Education of Girls in Australian Schools can be measured. The study was designed to provide data on gender matters related to boys as well as girls. A total of 408 schools across Australia were involved: 213 primary schools and 195 secondary schools. Questionnaires were completed by an average of 6 teachers and 25 students per sample school for actual samples of 1,097 primary teachers, 1,465 secondary teachers, 4,969 year-6 students, and 4,855 year-10 students. Schools from all three sectors--government, Catholic, and independent--were represented. Findings provide a wide range of data on how students experience gender in the schools, with sex-based harassment by other students not uncommon, and some gender discrimination still existing in the schools. However, the study offers evidence that attention to gender issues by systems, schools, and individual teachers does make a difference to the gender experience of students in schools. For example, the proportion of students reporting sexual harassment was considerably lower in states that had given continuous and careful attention to this issue. Much remains to be done, however, to ensure the development of all students regardless of gender. An appendix contains the study questionnaires. (Contains 49 tables, 18 figures, and 40 references.)

Knowing How to Teach Well: Teachers Reflect on Their Classroom Practice. Acer Research Monograph No. 44 by Margaret Batten( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This monograph gives an account of three associated studies of the professional craft knowledge of teachers as articulated by 20 teachers in 4 secondary schools in Victoria, Queensland, and New South Wales, Australia. Participants were chosen on the basis of: (1) student identification of their best teachers and (2) equal representation from three curriculum areas--humanities, science/mathematics, and practical subjects. The teachers were observed for three lessons each, and asked to talk about aspects of the lesson that had pleased them, which involved reflection on why and how certain strategies were used. From these recorded interviews, an individual pedagogical profile was developed for each teacher. THe six chapters of the monograph are: (1) "The Context of the Project" (Margaret Batten); (2) "Students' Perceptions of Effective Teaching" (Margaret Batten); (3) "Exploration of Teachers' Professional Craft Knowledge: The Victorian Study" (Margaret Batten); (4) "Exploration of Teachers' Professional Craft Knowledge: The Queensland Study" (Perc Marland); (5) "Exploration of Teachers' Professional Craft Knowledge: The New South Wales Study" (Mon Khamis); and (6) "Summary and Conclusions" (Margaret Batten and Perc Marland). Appendices provide: (1) a pedagogical profile from the Victorian study and (2) diagrammatic representations of two teachers' concepts of teaching effectiveness from the Queensland study. (Contains approximately 85 references.) (Ll)
