The purpose of this study is to discover information which may contribute to a better understanding of the value of application photographs for prospective teaching positions. Specifically, this study is concerned with the following aspects: (1) the extent to which superintendents of schools use photographs in teacher selection; (2) the influence in which three physical characteristics, namely, size, contrast, and expression, may have upon teacher selection; and (3) the value which the superintendent of schools places on the photograph as an instrument of teacher selection.
