An Analysis of the Effects of an Undergraduate Pre-Service Teacher Education Program on Selected Personal Characteristics.
Pizzini, Edward Leon
This study was an attempt to measure the self-concept, dogmatism, and science teaching philosophy of students enrolled in special preservice education courses and to determine any changes in or effects of an early exploratory experience program on the development of attitudes toward teaching. It was also aimed at establishing baseline data for longitudinal evaluation of the Iowa Undergraduate Pre-Service Teacher Education Program (UPSTEP). The 23 participants in the UPSTEP I program and the 25 participants in the UPSTEP II program, as well as 22 students who had not participated in the program, were involved in the study. Instruments used included: (1) Tennessee Self-Concept Scale, (2) Science Teaching Assessment Test, (3) Rokeach Form E Dogmatism Scale, (4) Minnesota Attitude Teacher Inventory, and (5) Semantic Differential for Selected Educational Concepts. The experimental design consisted of a pretest-posttest design. Statistics utilized in the study consisted of the "t" for independent and related samples. In general, the findings of the study suggest that the experimental Iowa-UPSTEP program was effective in contributing to positive growth in the selected personal characteristics. (Author/EB)
