The primary purpose of this study was to determine perceptions of student teachers regarding the effectiveness of university supervisors, school principals and co-operating teachers participating in the teacher education program at the Hashemite University in Jordan. A total of 120 student teachers participated in the study by completing the researcher-designed questionnaires. The results indicated that participants perceived favorable high agreement toward the effectiveness of university supervisors and co-operating teachers and moderate agreement toward the effectiveness of school principals. Furthermore, based on t-test and ANOVA analysis, significant differences were not found in student teachers' perceptions based on gender and grade-point average (GPA). The study ended by offering a number of practical and theoretical implications for the field of study. (Contains 5 tables.)
