Lärarstuderandes tvetydighetstolerans - en jämförande studie

Abstract [en]

The work as a teacher demands that the teachers have an ability to manage novel, complex and insoluble situations. What does that mean for the students that train to become teachers? Do the demands of the profession mean that the students show high tolerance to those situations? Or is it the other way around? Because teachers often find themselves in novel, complex and insoluble situations teacher students show low tolerance in order to have a chance to keep certainty, security and mental balance? I have tried to map out teacher student’s attitude to situations of ambiguity, situations that contain something new, insoluble and/or complex. To examine the attitude of the students I have used a test by Budner in the beginning of the 60s. The test is supposed to measure people’s tolerance of ambiguity. The sample on which this study is based consists of students from the Teacher Education for the Compulsory School System, the Pre-school Teacher Education and the Leisure Pedagogue Education at the University of Karlstad. The students were at the beginning and at the end of their education in the spring of 1998. The degree of ambiguity tolerance was measured and then was examined whether there was a difference of tolerance between; * students in the beginning and in the end of the education * students on different programs * male and female students * students in different ages The test used proved to have low reliability. The items tried to cover such a wide area that the statements in the test became too "spread out". Because of the low reliability the results of the study must be taken with caution. The analyses of the data showed that; - the students had, in comparison with earlier results with the same measure, a relatively high ambiguity tolerance. - students at the end of the education have a slightly higher ambiguity tolerance than students at the beginning of the education. - students at the Education for the Compulsory School System 1-7 had a somewhat higher tolerance than students from the Pre-school Teacher Education - there was no difference in tolerance between male and female students - there was no difference in ambiguity tolerance between different ages.
