Holcomb, Zelda J.; Loadman, William E.
Student teacher supervisors were surveyed to obtain their ratings of graduates from the College of Education at Ohio State University. Three sample years (l978-79, 1980-81, 1981-82) were chosen. The questionnaire dealt with: (1) whether or not the graduate was still being supervised by the individual completing the questionnaire; (2) how long the graduate had been under the individual's supervision; (3) how well prepared the graduate was to assume teaching responsibilities; (4) how confident the graduate is in performing teaching duties; (5) how effective the graduate is as a teacher; (6) would the graduate be rehired; (7) how the graduate's teaching performance compares with other teachers at the same level; and (8) areas of the teacher education program, identified by the supervisor, that should be added or receive increased emphasis. Examination of the data indicate that supervisors are generally pleased with the teachers that have graduated from the university. The graduates received positive ratings on their confidence and on their educational preparedness from their supervisors. Tables comparing data among the groups of graduates are included. Suggested program improvements are listed. (JD)
