Evaluating Student Teaching Performance.
Ediger, Marlow
This paper discusses three methods of assessing student teacher performance: checklists; measurable objectives; and teaching performance tests. Checklists, recommended by some schools of education, need to contain a comprehensive set of knowledge, skills, and attitudinal behaviors pertaining to quality student teaching. Checklists permit a flexible method of evaluation, and the evaluation can generate additional comments on the student teacher's progress. Criterion-referenced supervision through observational visits uses more measurable and precise objectives in evaluating student teacher performance. In this method, successful student teacher performance depends upon pupils' achievement of certain specified learning objectives. Teacher performance tests are used to measure the quality of student teaching. In this method, the actual teaching process, including preparation of lesson plans and evaluation of learners, are examined. Measurably stated objectives need to be written for each test taken by a given set of student teachers. (JAZ)
