Abstract: The purpose of this study was to synthesize the extant research literature on qualities of effective teachers and selection interviews as a step in developing an instrument that included an anchored rating scale that was validated through a national survey. The survey, which was sent to 300 practicing principals, collected information on building-level administrators’ interviewing practices and their perceptions of statements associated with varying levels of teacher effectiveness. Principals reported that they often use techniques that enhance the validity and reliability of the interview. Descriptive statistics summarized the level of agreement among administrators on how they rated statements as well as the degree to which their ratings agreed with a research-based targeted rating. A MANOVA found significant interactions for interviewer training and the use of specific interviewing techniques. Finally, correlations and chi-square tests established that administrator demographics had little impact on how they rated a series of statements associated with teacher responses to interview questions.
