deVoss, Gary; DiBella, Robert
Students who graduated from Ohio State University's College of Education during the 1979-1980 school year were surveyed for this report. Data were obtained through questionnaires and from classroom observations and interviews with selected respondents. Survey results are reported and discussed in three sections. In the first section, the summary of a demographic and professional perspectives questionnaire provides the bulk of analysis, with 48 items in three general areas: (1) basic demographic data; (2) feelings toward and evaluation of preservice education program; and (3) problems and experiences faced during the first year of teaching. Interview results with 50 graduates working as teachers in the Columbus, Ohio area are presented in the second section, focusing on feelings about teaching, the undergraduate program, induction, and supervision. The third section introduces the results of classroom observations with 45 of the interviewed teachers concentrating on three representative behavioral variables: clarity, enthusiasm, and academic learning time. Implications and recommendations for the preservice program and copies of the survey instrument are included. (FG)
