Harchar, Rayma
Journal of Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, v5 n1 p35-47 Jan 2005
Schools of graduate and undergraduate education can be of great help to each other. To be an effective interviewer or interviewee, a person must have experience. The perceived self-efficacy of interviewing skills may help in actual interviews. A mock interview strategy is proposed to help administrator and teacher candidates become proficient in the interview process while helping one another. Action Research methods were used as the research design and theoretical framework. Data were gathered from: observation, reflection on practice, narratives and student surveys. A total of 170 surveys were completed. Results indicated that perceived self-efficacy was improved and the experience was worthwhile. Improvements and changes to the strategy were implemented.
