The Group Interview: A Predictor of Success in a Teacher Training Program.
Wolff, Diana E.; Gutierrez, Dru Ann
A description is given of a group interview process used with candidates for a nine month, field-based teacher training program. Five candidates were interviewed together by several faculty observers in a forty-five minute session. Faculty observed and noted leadership skills, verbalization and sharing of ideas, ability to convince others, acceptance of other's contributions, and skills in summarizing and synthesizing. Also noted were personal characteristics. It was felt that more information on the students' potential for success in student teaching could be obtained in this format than in an individual interview format. (JD)
