Teaching Competencies in Preservice Teacher Education: A Study of the Analysis of Variance in the Evaluative Efforts.
Stolworthy, Reed L.
This study sought to determine the degree of variance found existing among three different groups of evaluators relative to their assessments of the teaching competencies demonstrated by 60 preservice teacher education students. Data were obtained relative to the undergraduates' self-evaluations regarding the ability to demonstrate 25 teaching competencies. Data were also obtained from the evaluations of those students' cooperating teacher(s) and university supervisor(s) regarding the same 25 teaching competencies. The rating scale contained the same criteria related to the teaching-learning process. Descriptive and inferential statistics were applied to the data to determine significant differences in the assessments made by the three groups. In most instances, the mean values were not significantly different for the three groups of evaluators. The greatest differences were found between the evaluations derived from the student teachers and those obtained from cooperating teachers and university supervisors on maintaining a professional appearance. Another significant difference between the student teachers' evaluations and those of the cooperating teachers had to do with using appropriate resources for the development of lessons. Data from the study are displayed on appended tables, and the evaluation instruments are included. (JD)
