Our Students Speak: An Analysis of Survey Data Provided by ECSU Certification Candidates Concerning Their Professional Preparation and Connecticut's Common Core of Teaching. Research Brief, Winter 2002.
To better understand how teacher candidates (student teachers) from Eastern Connecticut State University (ECSU) grow and develop from the start to the end of their student teaching semester, data provided through the Student Teacher Growth Record were analyzed. Student Teacher Growth Records, along with narrative reports provided by student teacher coordinators, serves as the primary means of assessing the candidates knowledge, skills, and dispositions. The growth records are completed by the teacher candidate, cooperating teacher, and university coordinator midway through and at the end of the student teaching experience. Analysis of the growth records reveals that growth recorded between midyear and the end of the year was statistically significant. There were no significant differences among evaluations provided by the candidate, the cooperating teacher, and the university coordinator, suggesting that they all see the candidates performance in the same light.
