Assessing Students' Perceptions of Teachers' Successful Implementation of Project Goals: The Development of the SPoTS


"The WTMSMP's focus is deepening West Texas teachers' knowledge of fundamental mathematics. Because the region includes 84,000 square miles, evaluating participants' classroom integration of WTMSMP content is challenging. Classroom observations of purposely selected participants in the project's first two years led to concerns, including achieving adequate interrater reliability and determining the generalizability of results to participants' everyday practice. Due to the expansive region, conducting multiple observations was not possible, and a new strategy using student ratings of their teachers' practices was piloted in the third year. In this presentation, we present the pilot results and seek suggestions for observable teacher practices related to teaching mathematics conceptually that could be the basis for additional items for the recently developed measure."
