Although many PTs assumed problem-solving challenges and consensus decision making (e.g., choosing an agreed-upon case study; deciding when, where, or how to meet), some cited off-subject responses in instructor expectations (5.9% special education and 10.5% elementary education PTs).
Some did not respond to the question (6.1% special education and 46.3% elementary education PTs), and others provided off-subject responses (10.4% special education and 22.2% elementary education PTs); a majority in both groups reported gains in understanding how to work with students with disabilities.
