SERRATE GONZALEZ, Sara, CASILLAS MARTIN, Sonia and CABEZAS GONZALEZ, Marcos. Study of the criteria for selecting quality schools for teaching practice: An assessment proposal for improving teacher training. Estud. pedagóg., 2016, vol.42, no.3, p.369-389. ISSN 0718-0705.
This article presents the results of a study on the external practice teaching, linked to the undergraduate degree in education. Our aim was to contribute criteria on quality in the selection of schools to fit the professional profile of the student teacher and to make recommendations in relation to the schools available for teaching practice. To carry out the study, which employs a qualitative methodology, an open questionnaire was drawn up so that the students themselves could appraise the suitability of the schools where they had done their teaching practice. The final sample comprised 58 students and 48 schools that collaborate with teaching practice. Content analysis was used to evaluate the responses to extract the factors and the most intense relations. Based on these results we have been able to specify, in great detail, the useful key elements for selecting the most suitable schools for teaching practice.
Keywords: practices; training; quality criteria; evaluation.
