Summary

This two-phase study was conducted to content validate through professional consensus the competencies for use in training and certifying prospective public school teachers in Connecticut. In phase one, a two round modified Delphi approach was used to bring a panel of outstanding Connecticut educators to consensus as to which competencies were important measures of teaching effectiveness. In phase two, a state-wide survey of a random sample of 2743 Connecticut teachers and administrators was conducted to determine whether they perceived the competencies identified by the Delphi panel as important measures of teaching effectiveness. As a result of this study, 85 generic teaching competencies were identified which teachers and administrators agreed were important, were not grade specific, and were not subject matter specific. Also, teachers and administrators agreed that the behaviors described by 45 of the 85 competencies were directly observable by an evaluator. Finally, the construct validity of these competencies was supported through factor analysis, assuring that there is a link betwen Connecticut teaching competencies and the literature on teacher effectiveness.
