Abstract

The present study analyzed feedback from prospective teachers on field experiences in terms of their satisfaction and perceptions on the appropriateness of length and timing, benefits, and problems. Data were collected through a survey administered to seniors at a national university of education who completed all of the field experiences the university offered. The survey questionnaire consisted of 25 5point Likert scale questions and 15 open-ended questions. A total of 353 survey questionnaires were distributed, and 326 were returned. Analyses of the data revealed that satisfaction level on field experiences and the appropriateness of length and timing, benefits and problems the participating prospective teachers perceived by the respondents differed according to the types of field experiences. Based on these results, the study discusses implications and provides suggestions for improvement.
