Richard Tuimur, Elizabeth Role, Lazarus Ndiku Makewa

Abstract


The purpose of this paper was to test if there was a significant difference between students’ evaluation of their student teachers grouped according to teaching subjects. It also tested if there was a significant difference between evaluation of student teachers grouped according to teaching subjects in the following areas: preparation, supervision, teaching environment, and teaching practice experience. To test the hypotheses, Pearson’s product measurement correlation coefficient and t-test were applied. The results indicate that the mean in the student evaluation of arts and sciences student teachers are significantly different. The results also suggest that there was no statistical significant difference between evaluation of the student teachers grouped according to teaching subjects (arts and sciences) on all the areas of teaching practice.   Both groups have a high evaluation of preparation, teaching environment and teaching practice experience and have average evaluation on supervision.
