A Decade of Change in Teacher Education: Results of a Ten-Year Study on Quality and Personal Characteristics of Teacher Candidates.
Horton, Daniel, Jr.; Summers, Jerry
Data are presented on characteristics of secondary school teacher education candidates at Indiana State University (ISU). Most of the 11 charts present comparisons of students' grade point averages (GPA) in relation to another variable, such as major, Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) score, etc. There is a 10-year difference between the student populations compared, usually with the first group representing students who were at ISU between 1971-73, and the second group representing students who were at ISU between 1981-83. Comparative data and GPA data are presented on such variables as: (1) total enrollment in the secondary school student teaching experience; (2) majors of the secondary school teacher education candidates; (3) average SAT scores of selected university groups (teacher candidates and non-teacher candidates); (4) average age of student teachers at the time of application for student teaching; (5) student teachers who commute and those who do not commute; (6) major characteristic of a good teacher as identified by student teachers; (7) major characteristic of an incompetent teacher as identified by student teachers; (8) student teacher population, grouped according to the amount of academic credit transferred to Indiana State University; (9) student teachers categorized according to number of hours worked per week; (10) number of student teachers who indicated certain selected factors contributing to their choice of teaching as a profession; and (11) profile of the typical Indiana State University student teacher.
