Student Teacher Influence on Learner Cognitive Attainment.
Savage, Tom V.
The twofold purpose of this study was to examine the impact of student teachers on pupil achievement and to investigate whether or not cooperating teachers and college supervisors were able to discriminate between those variables that correlated with pupil attainment. Fourteen classrooms of learners who had two different student teachers during the same academic year were the subjects. Each student teacher was required to prepare two units of instruction containing specific objectives and a post-test. The percentage of objectives achieved on the post-test of the second unit was used as the criterion variable. Findings indicated that student teachers accounted for 6 per cent of variance of pupil achievement. Results also indicated that the cooperating teacher and college supervisor improved in ability to discriminate between student teachers who elicited higher levels of achievement and those who did not.
