Abstract:Results suggest that the survey of exceptionalities course and mainstreaming course had a statistically significant impact on the perceived knowledge of preservice general educators; however preservice general educators enrolled in the survey of exceptionalities course perceived themselves as having more knowledge and greater change in knowledge than preservice general educators enrolled in the mainstreaming course. Additionally, a minimal relationship existed between change in perceived knowledge and perceived instructional time, with the exception of the topics of causes and prevention and effective teaching. Responses from the open-ended survey questions and focus groups substantiated the perceived need for more knowledge and instructional time on the topics of characteristics of students with disabilities and effective teaching.
