A Quantitative Analysis of Student Teacher Supervision Models: Implications for the Role of University Supervisors.
Anderson, Debra J.
Teacher education institutions (N=197) were surveyed to determine what effect, if any, the reform movement has had on student teaching supervision, particularly on the role of university supervisors. In addition, institutions were asked about trends in and concerns about supervision. Findings indicate that: (1) the majority (86.8 percent) of institutions use a traditional model of student teaching supervision; (2) some institutions (16.8 percent) have changed their model of supervision in the past 5 years (changes were made to the traditional model, the clinical professor model, the teacher adjunct model, and the master teacher-apprentice model); (3) the role of university supervisors remains largely traditional; (4) the trends cited most often by respondents incorporate some of the ideas promoted by the Holmes Group, including professional development schools; and (5) teacher educators are concerned that program changes reflect improvement, not budgetary decisions. The questionnaire is included in the text. (IAH)
