Benchmarking mentoring practices : a case study in Turkey
Hudson, Peter B., Usak, Muhammet, & Savran-Gencer, Ayse (2010) Benchmarking mentoring practices : a case study in Turkey. Eurasia Journal of Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 6(4), pp. 245-252.
Throughout the world standards have been developed for teaching in particular key learning areas. These standards also present benchmarks that can assist to measure and compare results from one year to the next. There appears to be no benchmarks for mentoring. An instrument devised to measure mentees’ perceptions of their mentoring in primary science was administered to 304 preservice teachers in Turkey. Results indicated that the majority of mentees perceived they received mentoring practices, however, 20% or more claimed they had not received 24 of the 34 practices outlined on the researchbased survey. Establishing benchmarks for mentoring practices may assist educators to identify needs and developing programs that address these needs. This survey instrument can aid the identification of mentoring practices through the recipient’s perspective for advancing mentoring, which may ultimately have an effect on improving teaching practices.
