Testing Models Developed to Predict Performance in Student Teaching.
Twa, Jim; And Others
The purpose of this study was to validate on a second sample of student teachers, prediction equations developed to predict performance in student teaching. The study was part of a longitudinal project. Equations tested in this study were produced in a previous study by subjecting to multiple regression techniques six biographical and 40 psychological test scores for the 141 subjects who completed their student teaching between the spring of 1974 and the summer of 1975. The prediction equations which were developed for various groups of students in that group were then applied to the data for the 200 students in a second sample to calculate their predicted grades in student teaching. The predicted grades were then compared with the actual grades received by the student teachers. (Author)
