Since the two datasets analyzed in the study were quantitative and qualitative data, the convergent parallel design, a mixed-methods design (Creswell & Plano-Clark, 2011) was adopted as the research design of the study.

A focus group interview with the cooperating teachers or evaluators was conducted to provide an explanation of such cases of inconsistency. The findings may provide awareness for cooperating teachers and Teacher Education Institution (TEI) professors with insight into an effective way of completing the evaluation forms and also for a possible internship curriculum revision.
