This study compared the perceptions of the novice and the experienced teachers regarding the experienced teachers' role in mentoring novice teachers and to what extent experienced teachers practiced that role. To achieve the goals of the study, a Likert-like two-part questionnaire consisting of 43 items was developed. The questionnaire covered five dimensions namely: Education, class management, resources, relation, and management tasks. A cluster sample of three Directorates out of seven of Irbid District of Education was chosen. (151) novice teachers representing (35%)of the newly appointed teachers in those three directorates were given the questionnaire. And (358) experienced teachers were chosen representing (5%) of the experienced teachers in the three directorates.
The following statistics were used to answer the questions of the study: mean score, standard deviation, TTest. The findings of the study were as follows: "Instruction" came first as 'expected role' for both the novice as well as experienced teachers; "Instruction" also came first as 'performed role, as perceived by novice teachers while, "Class Management" ranked first as 'performed role, as perceived by experienced teachers.
Statistically significant differences at (0.05) were revealed on all dimensions between the "expectation role" and 'performance role, in the favor of 'expectation role, for both groups of participants. By contrast there were no statistically significant differences at (0.05) between both categories of participants regarding 'role expectation' except for the "Instruction" domain where the differences were in favor of the experienced teachers. Finally there are statistically significant differences at (0.05) on all dimensions in favor of experienced teachers concerning "role performance".
