A Formative Evaluation of an Experimental Teacher Education Project for Juniors in Mathematics Education.
Erb, Clinton A.
This paper summarizes the initial evaluation of an experimental teacher education project for juniors in mathematics education. The project was conducted in five junior high schools and five elementary schools in two quarters of the year 1970-71. In the fall quarter, each student teacher tutored an eighth grade student twice a week and spent some time observing regular teachers; in the winter quarter, the student teacher served as a teaching assistant on two half-days a week. Various tests of mathematical ability, personality, and attitude to teaching were administered to the student teachers at different times during the project. Significant gains are reported on several scales. The eighth grade students were given attitude and achievement tests; and significant differences between those who did and did not receive tutoring are reported for some of the attitude scales. The student teachers and the elementary school teachers completed questionnaires related to the project, and the responses indicated a generally positive reaction to the project. (MM)
