by Evans, Michael David, Ed.D., Lindenwood University, 2014, 170; 3668109
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between a teacher's observation score and the academic achievement of his or her students. Little research has been conducted in this area and no studies have been conducted that looked specifically at the Network for Educator Evaluation (NEE) observation instrument. Included in the study were 25 teachers of communication arts and 29 teachers of mathematics. These teachers were selected from schools that utilized both the NEE observation instrument during the 2012-2013 school year and were members of the Southwest Center for Educational Excellence (SWCEE). A Pearson Product Moment Correlation was applied utilizing teacher scores on the NEE observation instrument as the independent variable and the teacher effect size as the dependent variable. This study found no statistically significant relationship between a teacher's score on the observation instrument and the academic achievement of his or her students in either communication arts or mathematics.
