The University Supervisor: What Place in Academe? Student Teacher Supervisor Questionnaire.
Solliday, Michael A.; Anderson, Kaye
This study investigated procedures used by certified teacher training institutions to evaluate supervisors of student teaching programs. Three basic questions researched in the project were: (1) How are university supervisors evaluated and by what criteria; (2) Who evaluates university supervisors and how much weight does such evaluation have on salary, promotion, and tenure; (3) How satisfied are student teacher directors with the evaluation procedures used by their institutions? The survey was sent to the directors of student teaching at sixty-five certified teacher training institutions in Illinois, of which forty-nine responded. Compilation of the responses yielded the following information: (1) The most important considerations in evaluation are supervisors' efforts to improve the teacher education program, personal traits, and teaching ability; (2) Department chairmen, and directors of student teaching are most influential in decisions of salary and tenure, while department chairmen and other administrators (deans, vice presidents, presidents) are most influential in matters of promotion; (3) Twenty-three percent of the respondents report that evaluation is based solely on evaluation input from various individuals; twelve percent include personal observation in addition; sixteen percent use observations, conferences, self-evaluation, and informal procedures; twenty percent use "regular faculty evaluation" procedures; and twenty eight percent responded "none" or made no response to the question on evaluation procedures used. Ninety-three percent of the respondents reported satisfaction with their evaluation procedures. (MB)
