Quantitative Methods for Teaching Review
Keywords:teaching review, heterogeneity, stability and total variability indices, sums of squares, means of squares, degrees of freedom
AbstractA new method of quantitative evaluation of teaching processes is elaborated. On the base of scores data, the method permits to evaluate efficiency of teaching within one group of students and comparative teaching efficiency in two or more groups. As basic characteristics of teaching efficiency heterogeneity, stability and total variability indices both for only one group and for comparing different groups are used. The method is easy to use and permits to rank results of teaching review which is the one of the most important parts of general quality control in education.
