Self-Evaluation in Student Teaching: A Reanalysis.
Nelson, David; Sandness, Wesley
This study examined how grade level and gender affected student teachers' self-ratings and faculty and field supervisors' ratings of student teachers' performance. The sample consisted of 47 preservice students in a medium-size Texas university. The Texas Performance Evaluation Instrument was administered in the second semester, at the end of a 12-week student teaching block. Independent ratings were obtained from 47 supervisors and 6 faculty supervisors immediately after the practice teaching session. Results indicated that, in general, both elementary and secondary school student teachers accorded themselves higher self-ratings than either field or college supervisors. Supervisors generally agreed in their ratings of secondary school teachers, but not elementary school teachers. Females' ratings tended to agree with supervisors' ratings more than males' ratings.
