Predicting Student Teacher Effectiveness.
Butcher, Russell H.; Heaps, Richard A.
The value of four pre-training screening devices for predicting student teaching effectiveness was examined. The four activities were a) microteaching for 7 minutes, b) microteaching for 30 minutes, c) role playing using reality therapy, and d) values conflict discussion. These activities were administered to 52 undergraduates in the Brigham Young University Individualized Secondary Teacher Education Program. Following each activity, an evaluation of the participants was made. The predictive areas of evaluation included a) interaction of the participant with the students during the student teaching experience, b) interaction of the participant with other teachers during student teaching, and c) general teaching effectiveness of the participant during student teaching. Following the student teaching, an evaluation of the participants was made by their cooperating teachers. A comparison of the data revealed that the 7-minute microteaching was the most consistent predictor of student teaching success. The 30-minute session was the poorest predictor. The remaining activities proved to be irrelevant to the student teaching evaluation. (Ten references and one table of statistical data are included.) (BRB)
