Kin-Shing TSE & Choi-Man CHUNG（謝建誠、鍾財文）
This research employed Holland's vocational theory to study the relationship between teaching performance and personality-environment congruency of student teachers in a college of education in Hong Kong. The study employed a survey and field study through classroom observation. Self-directed Search was used to categorize student teachers' personality types, through which two levels of congruency were defined. Teaching performance was obtained by two lecturers through classroom observation. The inter-judge reliability based on the performance of 30 subjects was found substantially high. Result of one way analysis of variance showed that there was significant difference in the teaching performance between subjects of the congruent group and the incongruent group (F(1,56) = 33.09, MSE = 1324.01, p < 0.001). Regression result also revealed that the congruency accounted for 37.7% of the variance in predicting the teaching performance.
