ABSTRACT
This is an extension of a 1977 study on the effectiveness, in terms of success in student teaching, of a process for screening students for a physical education teacher preparation program. Pre-entry data including interview ratings, secondary school GPAs, and skill and fitness scores, as well as post-entry data including university GPAs, were correlated with student teaching ratings (STRs) on a total of 402 graduates between 1967 and 1983 at the University Of Victoria. In the 1986 study, in addition to the correlations, ANOVAs were computed. The correlation matrix revealed significant but low positive correlations between secondary GPAs and university GPAs generally, and between STR and 3rd-, 4th-, and 5th-year GPA, respectively. ANOVAs revealed no significant differences in achieved STRs between interview categories, teaching attitude categories, or the four levels of entering GPAs. The only predictive power of pre-entry data was exhibited by entering GPA in presaging academic attainment in the 5-year program. In general, no pre-entry data were helpful in predicting teaching success.
