A Report on the Analysis of Student Teacher Evaluation Forms Used in New York State.
King, Michael; Van Ryn, Mary
A study of student teacher evaluation forms was conducted in the hope that publication of the results would allow teacher preparation institutions in New York State to measure their own progress toward implementation of a competency-based teacher education program. Eighty-nine evaluation forms from approved programs in education were analyzed to determine the emphasis placed on various portions of student teaching and the assessment standards employed in making judgments about the performance of student teachers. The results of the study indicate that a) student teaching forms in use in many New York State-approved teacher education programs consist largely of judgments made on the basis of either subjective requirements or subjective criteria; b) evaluation of student teachers emphasizes portions of professional education for which formal instruction is seldom provided; and c) there is presently a marked contrast between the forms in use for evaluation of student teaching and the contents and processes of teacher preparation courses now being offered at a majority of teacher preparation institutions in New York State.
