Examining the Extremes: High and Low Performance on a Teaching Performance Assessment for Licensure
This study examines the correlation between supervisors' predictions and students' performance grades. The authors found a correlation between the high- and low-performing candidates’ grades in university course work and their scores on the performance assessment. However, the authors found differences between supervisor predictions and actual scores on the performance assessment. The results reveal that the majority of candidates whose supervisors predicted failure did not fail, and the majority of candidates who did fail had been predicted to pass.

Post-Lesson Observation Conferencing of University Supervisors and Physical Education Teacher Education Students
This study aimed to examine post-lesson observation conferencing discourse between university supervisors and physical education teacher education students. The authors conclude that the university supervisors demonstrated a collaborative style of conferencing that allowed preservice teachers plenty of opportunities to speak. Many factors impacted the time spent conferencing with the most important being time constraints. However, it was found that the supervisors recognized the importance of these constraints and have taken steps to allow for adequate time.

Pushing too Little, Praising too Much? Intercultural Misunderstandings between a Chinese Doctoral Student and a Dutch Supervisor
The purpose of this study is to shed light on the causes of communication difficulties and misunderstandings between Western supervisors and Asian students in relation to their cultural and educational differences. The authors analyzed three implicit misunderstandings in this study occurred due to mismatched and unspoken expectations about the learning goals and learning behaviors between the supervisor and the student, largely reflecting their educational and cultural background differences. The learning patterns they previously had developed became a natural source for them to understand the teaching and learning of international education in the beginning.

Making Meaning in Student Teaching
This article examines the way the teacher candidates used their understandings of their roles and relationships to construct instances of success. These participants had the same content major, took the same teaching coursework, and had the same programmatic expectations for student teaching. Both deemed their student teaching internship as a successful learning experience, and they received a passing grade. However, the two teacher candidates differed in the ways which they made meaning of everyday events and relationships. One of the participants defined success through the feedback from her cooperating teachers and university supervisors, whereas the other participant drew upon her own internal beliefs.

Opportunities to Develop Adaptive Teaching Expertise during Supervisory Conferences
The purpose of this study was to identify the supervision styles and types of discourse used when addressing or failing to address the three specific problems. The findings suggest that student teachers and supervisors do not use critical discourse to capitalize on opportunities to develop adaptive teaching expertise. The author used three problems - (1) unquestioned familiarity, (2) dual purposes, and (3) context- as a framework to learn how university-based supervisors helped student teachers engage in conversations around these common experience-based problems.

National Assessments for Student Teachers: Documenting Teaching Readiness to the Tipping Point
To evaluate the impact of the emergent national teacher performance assessment (TPA) on student teachers (STs), this study examined a pilot implementation at one university in Washington State during Spring 2011. The findings reveal that there are some potential benefits to the TPA that may positively affect student and teacher learning. The finding show that STs report greater levels of reflection enabling them to better focus on student thinking. Similarly, university supervisors see the TPA as an opportunity to shift the analysis of teaching episodes to the ST, thereby developing more complex pedagogical thinking in teacher candidates.

Approaches to Supervision of Student Teachers in One UAE Teacher Education Program
This study investigated the nature of relationships among student teachers, university supervisors, and cooperating teachers in one UAE teacher education program. The findings reveal that most student teachers preferred the collaborative approach to supervision. The cooperating teachers most often used collaborative supervision with student teachers. In contrast, the university supervisors used directive approach. Moreover, unlike cooperating teachers, university supervisors had negative opinions of the abilities of student teachers in this program.

Teacher Educators as Learners: How Supervisors Shape Their Pedagogies by Creating and Using Classroom Videos with Their Student Teachers
This study explored how supervisors can develop greater stances of inquiry toward their practices as they experimented with video of their student teachers and shared their experiences with peers. The findings revealed how these experiences not only enhanced their existing personal approaches toward supervision, but also challenged their roles as observers and prompted them to build messages about teaching dispositions directly from video. The supervisors’ willingness to share and listen to others’ experiences with video was critical to their growth. Supervisors across grade levels, subject areas, and field sites either recognized or began to recognize how creating and using video could help them share at least a bit more of the learning space with their student teachers.

Navigating the Terrain of Third Space: Tensions With/In Relationships in School-University Partnerships
The authors wanted to understand the challenges hybrid teacher educators face in efforts to foster third spaces in partnerships. They investigated the ways university-based teacher educators foster and mediate relationships to work toward a collective third space. The authors investigated the relationships encountered in partnership contexts, challenges and tensions faced in these relationships, and ways they negotiated tensions and worked to overcome impediments to developing third space over time. In addition, the authors propose a framework for moving beyond traditional notions of oppositional triadic relationships of student teacher, mentor teacher, and supervisor in recognition of complex social ecologies in the third space.

The Practicum in Preservice Teacher Education: A Review of Empirical Studies
This article presents literature review that describes a systematic analysis of 113 empirical studies conducted between 1996 and 2009. This review portrays a picture of the rationales, goals, activities, roles, and outcomes in the different practicum settings in teacher education programs. The review shows that the rationale, goals, and activities in the different practicum settings are focused on teaching competencies and acquaintance with the pupils’ diversity. The review shows that the individual relationships between mentors, supervisors, and preservice teachers were attended by tension and conflicts ensuing from different interests, educational philosophies, and status differences that were not bridged.
