Evaluating Teaching Competencies: An Analysis of the Variance Existing in Different Assessments.
Stolworthy, Reed L.
This follow-up study of first year teachers involved a population of 74 undergraduates who had completed the Washburn University (Kansas) teacher preparation program. Data were obtained relative to the undergraduates' status in teaching during the 1985-86 academic school year and their individual self-evaluations regarding 25 selected competencies related to teaching. The data obtained from the first year teachers were also compared to their own self-evaluation obtained while they were previously serving (approximately one year before) as student teachers during the fall of 1984 and the spring of 1985 respectively. Also included were the student teaching evaluations completed during the fall of 1984 and the spring of 1985 by the same individuals' cooperating teachers and university supervisors. The principals who observed the undergraduates as first year teachers were also involved in the study, evaluating them relative to the same selected competencies. Descriptive and inferential statistics are applied to the data. (JD)
