Program: Doctor of Education in Curriculum and Instruction

Advisor: Dr. Keith Thiede, Curriculum, Instruction, and Foundational Studies

Teachers make a variety of judgments as they teach. The accuracy of these judgments may influence instruction and student achievement. Furthermore, research shows that teachers use cues to make these judgments, and the type of cues significantly impact the accuracy of their judgments. (Koriat, 1997). The present investigates (a) how accurately participating teachers judge student performance on tests of knowledge and tests of application, (b) what cues teachers report using for these judgments, and (c) whether the cues teachers use influence the accuracy of judgments of student performance on tests of knowledge and application.
