Yager, Robert E.
The data in this report were collected as part of a study that involved all teacher education graduates at the University of Iowa prior to 1970. The information from this study is considered baseline data for an evaluation of the Iowa-UPSTEP program (Undergraduate Pre-Service Teacher Education Program), which was begun in 1969 as a proposed innovation in science teacher education at the secondary level at the University of Iowa. The information presented includes evaluation of courses in the professional sequence, adequacy of student teacher observation, effectiveness of student teacher supervision, views concerning importance of student teaching, relative importance of specific courses, and preparation for specific tasks required in teaching. Forty-five tables of data are presented, as well as the instruments used in collecting the data. (MLH)
