Selected Characteristics of Public School Cooperating Teachers as Evaluated by Student Teachers.
Chevrette, John M.
Eight hundred twenty-nine health or physical education cooperating teachers in south central Texas were evaluated by their student teachers after they had completed their student teaching and returned to campus. Individual rating charts listed 14 teacher characteristics and provided for the responses: "excellent,""adequate,""poor," and "unknown." Findings revealed that characteristics dealing with orientation, acceptance and friendliness, student teacher responsibilities, and realistic teaching experiences each had response ratings greater than 90 percent when the excellent and adequate categories of the questionnaire were combined. The characteristics dealing with professional growth, self-evaluation, appropriate level of achievement, and the use of instructional materials had response ratings ranging from 75 to 84 percent. All characteristics evaluated had response ratings greater than 75 percent when the excellent and adequate categories were combined. Recommendations are made for further study. (JD)
