Student Teaching Performance in English as Measured with Checklist of High School Class Activities.
Veal, L. Ramon; Scott, Owen
The purpose of this investigation was to examine the performance of University of Georgia student teachers in English on the six dimensions of the Checklist of High School Class Activities and to compare this evaluation with student teaching grades, academic grades, and scores on the National Teacher Examinations. The 74-item checklist was administered to the pupils in one class of each of 16 secondary school English student teachers at the end of one quarter, with classes of exceptionally high or low ability being eliminated. Although there was great variability in individual scores, the student teachers as a group tended to be highly rated by their pupils. These ratings, however, showed no significant correlation with student teaching grades, academic grades, or National Teacher Examination scores. Results indicate that pupil perception of a teacher's performance tends to differ from that of other evaluation sources. (An appendix contains the specifications for the checklist and a categorized list of the 74 checklist items.) (RT)
