Abstract

Teacher builds the nation by moulding the students. Teaching is a unique profession that involves a demand for social engagement and the energy devoted to establishing relationships is rarely found in other professions. The future of students practically relies on the teacher and his teaching. Aim: To calibrate the comprehensive assessment battery for teachers. Method: Sub-scales were first figured out and operational definitions were framed using various theories like Bruner’s instructional theory, Clarke’s general teaching theory, Mitra’s psychological teaching theory and from other studies based on teaching and teacher characteristics. Items were generated through 4 focus group discussions and content validation was done with subject matter experts (N=10). And standardised using purposive sampling of Tamil Nadu school teachers (N=32). Results: Eight sub-tests namely teacher behaviour in classroom, instructional strategies, teacher – student relationship, teacher attitude, decision and initiation, teaching strategy, emotional stability& awareness and social acceptance were extracted: 234 items, 53 incomplete statements and 10 pictures were incepted. The battery was found to have good internal consistency. Conclusion: Teacher assessment battery consists of eight sub-tests along with a sentence completion test and a picture projective test which provides indication of the teacher’s personality, attitude, behaviour, strategies and emotional stability.
