The University Supervisor: What Place in Academe?
Jacko, Carol M.; Karmos, Ann H.
Because the role of university supervisor of student teachers differs from that of the typical on-campus instructor, the evaluation of university supervisors for tenure and promotion is often difficult. One criteria for tenure and promotion universally accepted in academe is that of teaching expertise. The authors designed an evaluation form that met the format requirements of the university-wide evaluation of teaching used at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale, yet contained items that reflected the unique role of the university supervisor. This Center Coordinator Evaluation Form, presented in the paper, consists of a single sheet, varying for each of the three groups responding--student teachers, cooperating teachers, and public school administrators. The items are printed on mark-sensitive paper with open-ended questions on the back. A Likert-type scale is used for the response options. Each individual supervisor receives a computer printout of the results. A computer printout of the combined data of the program is also provided. The Center Coordinator Evaluation Form is now the vehicle for evaluating university supervisors at Southern Illinois University. (Author/MB)
