This companion volume to the authors' Assessing Teacher Competency provides schools of education, teacher induction programs, and school districts with the safe, valid, and reliable framework for assessing and measuring teacher dispositions that they have long sought. Teacher affect and disposition have always been more difficult to define and measure than teacher knowledge and skills (competency), but together those three measures define the standards of best practice set by NCATE, INTASC, and NBPTS. The authors' 5-step DAATS model for measuring teacher affect and dispositions is research based, field tested, and presented in a step-by-step sequence with worksheets, training activities, and examples from both pre-service and in-service settings. The DAATS model for assessing teacher dispositions may be used on its own, or it may be used in conjunction with the authors' CAATS model for assessing teacher competency (knowledge and skills) as part of a comprehensive assessment system.

"The text has been well researched, is standards-based, and includes activities, worksheets, definitions, and rubrics. It addresses a topic that has been a mystery to assessment gurus." -- Marilyn K. Troupe, Director, Division of Educator Preparation
"We have all been through statistics classes and measurement classes, but this text actually helps us apply measurement ideas to the concept of dispositions. It should be extremely helpful to education faculty as well as to their liberal arts and science counterparts who often do not understand the concept of dispositions or why they are important and need to be measured or how one even begins to develop an assessment system that includes such measurements." -- Martha Gage, Director of Teacher Education and Licensure
"School leaders will find an important, key tool to assessing teacher dispositions. It's been field-tested, so it isn't just theory. An essential guide." -- California Bookwatch, August 2007
"This book is chock full of worksheets, assessment design techniques, staff discussion and training activities, and a variety of examples as to how the above can be used for pre-and in-service settings, with or without a statistical focus. This is not a book written for the average consumer, but rather for teacher educators, assessment designers, and K-12 school administrators and staff developers. From an instructor's perspective, sections of the text would be excellent as an introduction to quantitative research methods for the social sciences." -- Teachers College Record, August 2008
