Problems Reported by Students in Educational Methods Courses.
McBrien, Robert J.; Meade, Randolph
The purpose of this study was to identify the most frequently reported problems and problem categories--or subscales--as defined by the college form of the Mooney Problem Checklist (Mooney and Gordon, 1950). Subjects were three groups of students: 49 members of a health class, 35 potential resident advisors, and 23 members of elementary education methods courses. The number of problems circled ranged from two to 90 with an average of 28 problems. Problems most frequently circled concerned personal, social, and course work areas. With the exception of the Education Methods students and their concern for obtaining a teaching contract, there were few differences in the problems reproted by the participants of this study and their predecessors of the 1960's. The findings emphasize the need for campus programs that encourage personal-social growth of individual students. (Author/JLL)
