"Wha'd She Think?"--A Comparison of the Role Perspectives, Evaluative Judgment Criteria Cognitive Maps, & Written Records of Three University Student Teacher Supervisors.
Simmons, Joanne M.
Case study methodology using structured interviewing and cognitive mapping techniques has been used to reveal the contrasting role perspectives and evaluative judgment criteria of three university student teacher supervisors with different professional backgrounds. This study extends an earlier investigation by comparing these role perspectives and judgment criteria with the results of content analysis of each supervisor's written observation records and final reports for a nominated sample of six so-called strong, average, and weak student teachers with whom she worked. The implications of these findings for future research and for the selection, training, and on-going support of such supervisors are presented. Data from the study are displayed in 10 tables and 44 references are included. (Author/JD)
