A Comparative Study of Illinois State University Elementary Teacher Graduates of the Regular Student Teaching and the Joliet Teacher Education Center Programs 1970-71.
Fitch, Thomas; Klima, Kenneth
Student graduates' opinions regarding their teacher preparation programs were surveyed, compared, and evaluated. The two programs studied were the regular student teaching program at Illinois State University (I.S.U.) and the Joliet Teaching Education Center Program (J.T.E.C.). Participants were 75 J.T.E.C. students and 75 students from the I.S.U. program. A questionnaire of 110 items was constructed to investigate the elements of each program. Return data were machine-scored and converted to punched data cards for statistical evaluation. A chi square analysis was utilized, permitting comparison of responses for each group on each item. Results were grouped in ten corresponding categories: demographic data, postgraduate employment, student teaching placement, undergraduate preparation, occurrence of problems, college supervision, public school supervision, extraclassroom activities, time commitments, overall evaluation, and commitment.
