ABSTRACT

Although the original Tool for Assessing Responsibility-based Education (TARE) has proven useful in several studies, it has limitations. The three-fold purpose of this article is to present a revised version of the TARE including a new section to measure students´ behaviors, analyze the inter-rater reliability of the instrument, and assess the relationships between results of teacher and student observations. Data from 120 3-minute intervals of instructional time in physical education and general education lessons were analyzed. Intra-class Correlation Coefficient (ICC) in conjunction with Standard Error of Measurement (SEM) analyses was conducted to assess the inter-rater reliability of the teacher observation section and the student observation section of the TARE 2.0. Additionally, differential analysis, and Pearson correlation coefficients were carried out. Findings indicate the various categories in the teacher and student observation sections have a high degree of inter-rater reliability and that there are many significant positive correlations between the two.
