Personalities and Perceptions of Student Teaching.
Bell, Michael L.
This study identified the personality traits of both student teachers and cooperating teachers that were related to the student teachers' perception of the student teaching experience. The Sixteen Personality Factor Questionnaire (16 P.F.) measured personality traits and the Purdue Student Teacher Opinionnaire (PSTO) measured the perception of the student teaching experience. Seventy-six secondary student teachers were administered the 16 P.F. and the PSTO; their cooperating teachers were administered the 16 P.F. All scores were factor analyzed to determine which personality factors were related to higher opinions of the student teaching experiences. The relationships between student and cooperating teacher personality differences and the student teachers' perception of student teaching were also examined. Results indicated that student teachers who were Emotionally Stable (C), Humble (E), and Shrewd (N) expressed high opinions of the student teaching experience. They also expressed high opinions of the student teaching experience when the cooperating teachers were Practical (M), Conservative (Q1), and Subdued (IV). Two tables of statistical data are included. (BRB)
