Summary

This study was conducted to examine differences and similarities between the views of teachers, principals and college professors as reflected on the Mathematics Inventory for Teachers (MIT) which is concerned with both cognitive and affective outcomes of mathematics instruction. A randomly selected group of secondary school principals and mathematics teachers, and a stratified random sample of university mathematics educators were administered the MIT. Factor analysis, multivariate and univariate analyses of variance were used to analyze collected data. Results show that principals and teachers tended to be more closely aligned and expressed a greater amount of ideological agreement than did teachers and university mathematics educators, at least with respect to their pattern of responses to the MIT items. This study suggests that secondary school teachers may be more content with the existing behavioral orientation in the mathematics classroom that had been heretofore expected. (HM)
