A Study of the Concern Levels of Teacher Education Students.
Clark, Kathleen; Mahood, Wayne
This study attempted to replicate the research results of Frances Fuller regarding concerns and emotional maturity of prospective teachers. The report focused on the questions (a) Do concerns of prospective teachers tend toward universality? and (b) What are the programmatic implications? Subjects for this study were education majors whose experience ranged from no education courses to certification. The survey results confirmed the Fuller findings, though between-group differences in terms of three concern levels were not statistically significant, and most majors tended to be at lower maturity levels. The implication is that education programs may well require revision to reflect student concerns. (The report includes tables depicting standard deviations and variances of the four sample groups, and figures illustrating respondents' concern scores.) (Author/JS)
