The Status, Efficiency, and Motivation of Provisionally Certificated Personnel in Illinois. Provisional Certification Series No. 2.
Noak, John R.
This study represents the last of four studies devoted to Provisional Certification in Illinois--to the problems of provisionally certificated personnel in obtaining regular teaching certificates and the ways in which these problems can be alleviated through the cooperation of teacher training institutions, local school systems, county superintendents, and the State Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction. Objective-type questionnaires were used in this indepth study of a selected sample of provisionally certificated teachers and the administrators who interact with them daily. The questionnaires covered 26 areas of inquiry and were designed to deal with such questions as: "Why did these persons enter teaching without a regular certificate? How are they treated on the job? What are their future ambitions with regard to teaching?" Section 2 of this report presents data provided by teachers; section 3, data provided by their superintendents; and section 4, a summary and analysis of the results. Among these results are: (1) that the highest degree of concensus between superintendents and teachers was in their feeling that a primary reason for the lack of a regular certificate is the fact that teaching is often a late or secondary career choice, and (2) that the most apparent conflicts of opinion concerned the status and the job efficiency of provisionally certificated personnel. Included in the report are copies of the two questionnaires which were used. (Related document is SP 003 583.) (JES)
