Summary

The effect of the student teaching experience on self-concept was investigated. In the spring semester 1971-72, 260 students were enrolled in the student teaching courses in the College of Education, Louisiana State University (LSU). At the beginning and end of the semester, they were asked to respond to two Likert-type rating scales: self as a person and self as a teacher. By use of the usual weighting procedures associated with the Likert scale, it was possible to arrive at a self-concept score for each student at the beginning and at the end of his work as a student teacher. Changes were determined by finding the differences between pretest and posttest scores. Results indicate that positive changes occurred during the student teaching experience for 75 percent of the participants, greater growth in self-concept occurred on the part of off-campus student teachers than was the case with those assigned to the LSU laboratory school, and the mean self-concept changes of student teachers who worked in inner-city schools was in stark contrast to the comparable measures as applied to the group working in suburban schools.
