An Analysis of Elementary Participation Role Perceptions: Laboratory School Participant, Supervising Teacher, and College Supervisor.
Page, Jane A.; And Others
The purpose of this study was to analyze the role of the college supervisor, supervising teacher, and laboratory school participant as perceived by those occupying the three interacting positions. Participants in the study responded to role perception instruments, and an analysis of variance was computed to determine whether significant differences existed. Laboratory school participants were categorized on the basis of time of participation, major field of study, and grade level of participation. Significant differences were found in the perceptions of the three groups on the role of the college supervisor and on the role of the supervising teacher. No significant differences were found between the three groups on their perception of the role of the laboratory participants. It is concluded that the three positions should function within expectancies that are carefully structured. Recommendations are made for implementing organized procedures for communication of specific role expectancies. (JD)
