In spring of 2000, about 70 teachers and their students in a northeastern school district completed surveys about Dimensions of Learning practices and outcomes. Dimensions of Learning is a comprehensive approach to teaching and learning developed over a 10-year period (R. Marzano, 1992). Survey items focused on Dimensions 1 (attitudes and perceptions) and 5 (habits of mind). Results reflected teachers' self-assessed level of use for practices from Dimensions 1 and 5, classroom mean ratings of intended outcomes of Dimensions 1 and 5 as reported by students, and possible linkages between the two. Teachers on average demonstrated advanced levels of implementation for Dimension 1 practices, but they demonstrated only beginning levels of use for Dimension 5, developing students' habits of mind. Students reported qualities associated with Dimension 1 to a moderate or great degree, but reported moderate qualities associated with Dimension 5 only in the upper grades. Recommendations are made for evaluating the other dimensions and for examining the practices and qualities associated with Dimensions 1 and 5 with a larger sample. Three appendixes contain the surveys, the items used to measure the practices related to the dimensions, and graphs of survey responses. (Contains 13 tables, 3 figures, 8 graphs, and 18 references.)
