Interpersonal Perceptions of Student Teachers.
Soares, Anthony T.; Soares, Louise M.
To measure the interpersonal perceptions of 121 student teachers and their college supervisors and cooperating teachers, seven forms of a self-perception inventory of 72 traits expressed as dichotomous pairs of a continuum were administered to all three groups after the students had completed their educational internship. The index scores were submitted to a t test for correlated groups. Results indicated significantly higher self-concepts for the student teachers than the ratings which both groups of teachers gave them. The cooperating teachers and college supervisors anticipated this result with their ratings of how they thought the students would look at themselves. However, the students were less perceptive. They thought their cooperating teachers and supervisors would rate them higher as prospective teachers than they actually did. (Author/JS)
