Need and Proficiency of Teacher Competencies as Perceived by Student Teachers vs Practicing Professional Teachers.
Bartos, Robert; Lotven, Brian
This study compares the perceptions of student teachers and veteran teachers toward a selected set of competencies. It determines the degree of need judged by teachers for each competency and the level of proficiency they feel they have attained. Fifteen competencies were listed on the questionnaire submitted to participants in the study. Student teachers responded to the questionnaire before and after their teaching experience. Practicing professionals responded once. A consistency of feelings as to the need for competency in classroom management, student motivation, individualizing instruction, and evaluation techniques was found at all levels of experience. The implications of these findings for teacher education programs are discussed. (JD)
