The purpose of this study was to determine what, if any, relationships exist between beginning teaching effectiveness and patterns of professional preparation. Specific objectives of the study were to: (1) identify the component parts of the preparation of most effective and least effective teachers, (2) determine if such components constituted patterns that can be identified, and (3) determine if such patterns, if present, are related to teaching effectiveness.

It was hypothesized that there are no significant relationships between teaching effectiveness and patterns of professional preparation of first·-year elementary school teachers.
