Metropolitan Universities, v24 n1 p47-59 May 2013
This article, "Confidence and Preparedness to Teach" is a quantitative study that examines the level of preparedness for the classroom of fifty-seven student teachers. The student teachers, their cooperating teachers, and the professor-in-residence who monitored the placement completed a twenty-four item survey that rated the prospective teacher's preparedness for the classroom. The survey items, aggregated by domains and responses from the three different groups, were compared for responses that were similar and dissimilar.
