Predicting Success in Student Teacher from Teacher Perceiver Screeners and Pre-Professional Skills Tests.
Sentz, Erma I.
Data were collected throughout the 1989-90 school year at St. Cloud State University (Minnesota) to investigate whether or not Teacher Perceiver Screeners and/or Preprofessional Skills Tests (PPST) could be used to predict success in student teaching. Results indicated that the Teacher Perceiver Screener showed promise for use in predicting student teachers' abilities to motivate and communicate with students and to apply their skills in using specific teaching methods in classrooms. Some PPST scores seemed to be useful for predicting prospective teachers' abilities to control and communicate with students and to apply specific teaching methods when combined with portions of the screener. Further research is recommended. (JD)
