Pretest and posttest reactions to self-viewing one's teaching performance on video tape

Gavriel Salomon, Frederick J. McDonald

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Examined the changes in attitudes and cue-selection patterns of 38 teacher-trainees who were confronted with video-tape recordings of their own teaching performance. No viewing instructions or models of desirable behavior were given. It was found that teaching interns who were dissatisfied with their own teaching performance prior to self-viewing tended to devaluate the institution of teacher education, to maintain their self-perception, and to notice mainly physique cues on the screen. Teachers who were more positive about their own performance improved their self-perception, maintained their original evaluation of other concepts, and attended mainly to cues related to teaching behavior. Results are discussed in light of possible personality and treatment interactions. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved).
