The Effects of Certain Selected Variables in Student Teachers' Preparatory Programs on the Levels of Attainment of Their Students.
Henson, Kenneth T.
This investigation is part of a larger program conducted by a university department of curriculum and an instruction research team investigating 400 variables affecting learner achievement, teacher effectiveness, and teacher qualifications. This part of the study examines the variables of student teachers' over-all grade point average, average in professional education classes, and average in first student teaching experience, in order to determine which characteristics of student teachers most affect the academic achievement of their pupils. The study concludes that only long-term variables have significant effect on learner achievement, and that immediate teacher behaviors are of negligible significance to the learning process.
