Relationships Between Success in an Education Program and Success in the Teaching Profession.
Greene, Myrna; Dravland, Vern
This study examined the teaching effectiveness of a random sample of the University of Lethbridge Bachelor of Education graduates and related various components of their success to the performance of those same individuals as students within the teacher education program. Results are discussed in four major sections: (1) a description of the sample; (2) factors influencing success as perceived by principals and by teachers; (3) analyses of the evaluations of success as assessed by the professor in student teaching, the teacher self-evaluation, and the principal's evaluation; and (4) comparison of professors' assessments of future teaching success and principals' evaluations of teaching performance. Results showed what appeared to be a definite relationship between success in the program and success in teaching, but individual components of the program were not good predictors of success in teaching. References and examples of the questionnaires used in the study are included. (DS)
