Soixante-quatorze participants (93,7 %) ont fait preuve d'au moins une force (interet ou aptitude) pendant chacune des quatre premieres periodes d'age evaluees par le TPAI (0 a 24 ans).
La Note 1 donne un apercu des instruments utilises dans ces illustrations, autre que le TPAI.
Les histoires colligees a l'aide du TPAI peuvent etre considerees valides pour trois principales raisons.
For an overview of various TPAI validation processes and content analysis correlations with pupil's perceptions of the learning environment, with pupil engagement, and especially with pupil achievement, see Capie & Ellett (1982b).
Dickson & Wiersma (1984) reported separate factor analyses with promax oblique rotation of the TPAI and of the Classroom Observation Keyed for Effectiveness Research (COKER).
Logan, Garland & Ellett (1989) conceptually classified 610 teaching behaviors from eight contemporary large-scale teacher assessment instruments: the TPAI, Assessments of Performance in Teaching (South Carolina), FPMS, TADS, Tennessee Career Ladder Teacher Evaluation System, BTAP, TTAS, and Georgia Teacher Evaluation Process.
In a TPAI pilot study of observer team size and type, Padilla, Capie & Cronin (1986) obtained small differences associated with size of rating teams, i.
In the study of both low inference and high inference discussed earlier, Dickson, Wiersma, Jurs & Wenig (undated) compared the high-inference TPAI with the low-inference COKER using student teachers.
To assess how student teachers with different TPAI (exit evaluations) scores described their organizational life style, high and low groups were formed from the TPAI.
After the high and low groups were formed from the TPAI scores, two discriminate analyses were performed to determine whether total scores on the LSA could accurately predict high and lower performance on the TPAI.
But as can also be seen in Table 1, there are marked differences in how the high and lower TPAI performance groups scored on the LSA.
