Measurement of Cooperating Teacher Behaviors.
Kuehl, Raymond
The study focuses on the development of a valid and reliable instrument to measure independent variables of cooperating teacher behaviors. The secondary purpose was to determine if any of the demographic variables pertaining to the student teacher and the cooperating teacher were important in assessing the performance levels of cooperating teachers in fulfilling critical behavior tasks and whether the responses are independent of student teacher variables but related in anticipated ways to cooperating teacher variables. The population of the study included 1,068 teacher education majors in Iowa and 16 resident coordinators of student teaching. The data were subjected to a varimax factor solution for item reduction purposes and multivariate analysis to test nine null-hypotheses. Ten critical behavior tasks serve as the factors for the analysis. The nine hypotheses used the criteria of sex, grade point, major area of preparation, and grade received to measure student teacher variables, and sex, highest degree, total years in teaching, number of student teachers supervised, and completion of a course titled "Supervision of Student Teaching" to measure cooperating teacher variables.
