A Comparative Study Of Univariate And Multivariate Methodological Approaches To Educational Research , Robert M. Crawford Jan 1989

A Comparative Study Of Univariate And Multivariate Methodological Approaches To Educational Research , Robert M. Crawford

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

The purpose of this research was to examine a meaningful set of data from a longitudinal educational research project using univariate and multivariate methodological approaches. It was hypothesized that the multivariate analysis would provide a more in-depth and complete understanding of the underlying factors. A second purpose was designed to provide a practical, clear, and concise guide for other educational researchers to draw upon;The researcher first explored the possible relationship between teacher education graduates' teaching certification level and their adequacy ratings on 33 areas of preparation in their teacher education program. A comparison was made between the results of ...

An Analysis Of A Preservice Teacher Structural Equation Model Under Varying Assumptions And Measurement Conditions , Dean K. Frerichs

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

The purposes of this study were to develop a structural equation model of preservice teacher variables and to examine alternative methods of testing this model under different assumptions and measurement conditions. A conceptual model was posited to examine variables related to job expectations, academic ability, pre-student teaching preparation, satisfaction with cooperating teacher, self-rated student teaching performance, and quality of teacher preparation program;From this conceptual model of preservice teacher variables, five empirical models were developed and analyzed. Models I and II utilized single indicators computed as composite means of the respective observed standardized indicators. Model I assumed variables were measured ...
