A Study of Inter-Relationships Between Three Independent Rankings of Student Teacher Effectiveness, and Student Teacher and Supervising Teacher Assessments of Satisfaction with a Year-Long Field Program.
Mahan, James M.; Lester, Frank K.
The relationships between rankings of student teachers' effectiveness and the student teachers' and supervising teachers' satisfaction with a year-long student teaching program were assessed. Three independent rankings of student teachers were obtained from (1) 85 student teachers, (2) 46 supervising teachers, and (3) 10 university personnel. In order to measure the degree of satisfaction with student teaching, the Purdue Student Teacher Opinionnaire was administered to all student teachers and supervising teachers. Results indicated that both student teachers and supervising teachers tended to perceive the student teaching experience satisfactorily, but student teachers were significantly more critical of certain aspects of school programs than supervising teachers.
