Summary

Because a cumulative score is not computed for the Urban Teacher Selection Interview, item rankings do not appear to be operationally related to the overall ranking and final categorization of teacher education candidates. The purpose of this study was to determine the extent to which, during the final selection process, the interviewers ranked and categorized candidates on the basis of information collected during the interview. Subjects were 33 candidates for an alternative teacher-licensure program. Candidates were scored by trained interviewer pairs, using 14 items in 7 areas of the Urban Teacher Selection Interview Continua Rating Form. Multiple regression was used to determine which items best predicted the final rankings. Only one item, Application of Generalizations-A surfaced as a significant predictor of final ranking. Eight of the 14 items correlated significantly with the final ranking. Of the six that did not correlate to final ranking, five were highly correlated with other items in the interview. These findings indicate that the Urban Teacher Selection Interview does seem to have reasonable internal validity. Two tables present study findings. (Contains 22 references.) (Author/SLD)
