A National Survey of Student Teaching Programs. Final Report.
Johnson, James A.
This document reports a survey study designed to collect rather comprehensive descriptive information on student teaching from 1,110 teacher education institutions in the United States. The data--received from 847 institutions (76 per cent) and tallied for each state and for the entire country--is presented in 53 tables accompanied by explanatory discussion. Categories of information include general background of the institutions, administration of student teaching programs, the college supervisor, the student teachers themselves, and cooperating school districts and cooperating teachers. There are sections on the results of (1) an analysis by variable between public and private institutions and between institutions that have received National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) accreditation and those that have not and (2) an analysis of the nonrespondents (A random sample of 10 per cent of them was visited.). Conclusions, implications, and recommendations are presented, and the survey questionnaire is appended. With this document are four supplementary reports which elaborate (in the form of tables listing information by institution) on specific items in the questionnaire: No. 1--"Innovations in Student Teaching"; No. 2--"Student Teaching Research Grants"; No. 3--"Internship Programs"; No. 4--"The Use of Graduate Students to Supervise Student Teachers."
