Summary

This study was designed to ascertain a) the distribution of student teaching letter grades in 29 Iowa teacher education institutions from 1967-70; b) the predictive value of student teaching letter grades held by superintendents; and c) the preference of Iowa superintendents concerning the present letter grade and recommendation system versus the pass/fail system and written evaluation of the student teaching experience system. The data was gathered through questionnaires sent to each Iowa superintendent, the directors of student teaching at 29 teacher education institutions, and the directors of placement services at these institutions. Results revealed a) the distribution of letter grades was A-40%, B-50%, C-9%, and D-F-1%; b) Iowa superintendents attached a greater predictive value to the recommendation rather than the letter grade of the student teacher; and c) superintendents preferred the pass/fail system with a written evaluation rather than the present letter grade/recommendation system. (The implications of these results are discussed. Appendixes present the questionnaires used in the study along with forms for grade distribution and evaluation. An 11-item bibliography is also included.) (BRB)
