The Evaluation of a Training Program for Undergraduate Teaching Assistants.
Kanaga, Kim R.
An evaluation of a leadership training program for teaching assistants was made by examining the teaching effectiveness of a group of trained assistants in contrast to an untrained group. Assessments of the teaching assistant's classroom behavior were made by student volunteers, in their respective classes, at four time intervals during the term. The results suggest that while the training program was in progress, the teaching assistants who participated in it were more closely associated with effective levels of classroom performance than those who did not participate in the program. Trained teaching assistants continued to be more closely associated with effective leadership through the remainder of the year. (Author/JD)
