Summary

This research study sought to determine the extent of the relationship between teacher characteristics and student outcomes and to provide an indication of the order of importance among the teacher characteristics. A stratified random sample was selected of 236 secondary science teachers including 84 biology teachers, 111 chemistry teachers, and 41 physics teachers from 14 states. The selected science teachers completed four instruments. Each teacher randomly selected one of his/her classes to complete four instruments. Stepwise regression and canonical correlation were used to analyze the data. Results showed that the selected teacher characteristics accounted for one-fifth to one-third of the total variance in student scores. It was also indicated that the self-improvement variable seemed to be the most consistent predictor for student outcomes. (HM)
