STUDENT TEACHERS' PERCEPTIONS OF THEIR PROFESSIONAL PREPARATION DURING DEPTH INTERVIEWS.
GARRARD, JUDITH
THE USE OF THE EXIT INTERVIEW AS A CRITERION MEASURE OF THE STUDY OF PROSPECTIVE TEACHERS AND TEACHER TRAINING PROGRAMS WAS REPORTED. THE STUDY WAS MADE AS PART OF A LARGER INVESTIGATION MADE TO DISCOVER THE PERSONAL QUALITIES OF TEACHERS WHO REMAIN IN TEACHING AND TO DETERMINE THE PROGRAMS THAT PRODUCE TEACHERS. THE EXIT INTERVIEW WAS A CONFIDENTIAL, HOUR-LONG SEMISTRUCTURED INTERVIEW OF PROSPECTIVE TEACHERS CONDUCTED BY PSYCHOLOGISTS AT THE END OF THE TEACHER-PREPARATION PROGRAM. THE CASE NOTES OF PSYCHOLOGISTS' INTERVIEWS WITH 33 ELEMENTARY AND 24 SECONDARY PRESERVICE TEACHERS WERE CATEGORIZED. THEY WERE THEN RATED TO DETERMINE PERCEPTIONS OF ONE CONTROL GROUP AND THREE EXPERIMENTAL GROUPS THAT RECEIVED INCREASING AMOUNTS OF FEEDBACK FROM TEST RESULTS AND FROM FILMS MADE OF THE STUDENT TEACHERS WHILE TEACHING. INCREASING PSYCHOLOGICAL FEEDBACK FROM TESTS AND FILM VIEWING WAS FOUND TO INCREASE PREFERENCE FOR MIDDLE-CLASS SCHOOLS AND TO DECREASE PREFERENCE FOR LOWER-CLASS SCHOOLS. THE FINDING OF AN INVERSE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN IDEAL SCHOOL SITUATION WITH AMOUNT OF EXPERIMENTAL FEEDBACK WAS INTERPRETED AS BEING CONSISTENT WITH FESTINGER'S THEORY OF COGNITIVE DISSONANCE. RELATED REPORTS ARE AA 000 026 THROUGH AA 000 031. (AL)
