Student Teacher Performance in an Eight Weeks and a Full Semester Program: Perceptions of Supervising Teachers.
Morris, John E.
The purpose of this study was to determine if, in the view of the supervising teacher, there were differences in the performance of student teachers in an eight week program and in a full semester program. Participating supervising teachers had supervised two or more student teachers under a full-time, eight week student teaching program, and also had supervised one student teacher under a full semester program. The instrument used for data collection was a student teacher performance profile consisting of twenty-one performance objectives relating to instructional competencies and seven performance objectives relating to personal and professional competencies. Results indicated that a full semester student teaching program offers student teachers opportunities to perform at a higher level than does an eight week program. This additional time appears to be especially helpful in the development of competencies generally accepted as important in developing teaching effectiveness. (JD)
