The correlation of the moral qualities and the physical qualities of Voice and Energy are high, but when compared with the other qualities they seem to be less important. The low correlation of Health indicates either that good teaching is very hard on those engaged in it or that teaching does not attract a very strong class of people into its ranks--or that the disadvantage of relatively poor health may be overcome by exertion. When we compare these results with those from Ruediger and Strayer's investigation of elementary teachers we find points which tend to confirm the results of both, and yet, if the findings in the two cases can be taken as typical of elementary and secondary teachers, there are differences which show some different conditions in the two. All of our coefficients of correlation in the present study are higher than the corresponding coefficients of the earlier study. Thus our highest correlation is 0.90, theirs, 0.56; our lowest is 0.18, and their lowest, 0.04. This difference may be due to method of correlation, or to actual difference between the relation of these qualities to Merit in high-school and elementary teachers, though such a great difference is unlikely. The quality which had highest correlation with teaching efficiency in elementary teachers was Discipline, with Instructional Skill and Initiative ranking second and third. The coefficients of Instructional Skill and Discipline were respectively o. 56 and o. 54 in their study, and 0.90 and 0.67 in the present investigation, showing the much greater relative importance of Discipline in the grades.
