Assessment of Micro-Teaching and Video Recording in Vocational and Technical Teacher Education: Phase VII--Feedback Techniques in Inservice Methods Courses. Final Report.
Doty, Charles R.; Cotrell, Calvin J.
As part of a series of studies assessing micro-teaching and video recording in vocational and technical education, this study was designed as a field test of those techniques in inservice vocational teacher education. The two techniques were tested at three sites in New York State and involved the collection of data in terms of teacher performance, teacher satisfaction, and teacher education and direction assessment. A two-member panel of judges for each site rated the teachers' videotaped pretest and posttest teaching sessions using a critique form on teaching a complete lesson. The teacher satisfaction data were collected on a satisfaction scale completed by the teachers after the posttest taping session. The teacher educators completed questionnaires and the directors provided their reactions by letter. Based on analysis of these data, no statistical differences were found in teaching performance and teacher satisfaction between each of the three sets of two treatment groups. However, all five teacher educators endorsed the microteaching format for adoption in the methods courses, indicating that video recording was not necessarily an essential component. It was also recommended that microteaching sessions include high school-level persons as students. (Author/JS)
