This study investigated the mentoring functions and the supervisory relationships of 20 preservice and cooperating teacher-dyads in student teaching. Utilizing three instruments, Mentoring Functions, Supervisory Relationship Measure (SRM), and Supervisory Relationship Questionnaire (SRQ), the compatibility of their mentoring perceptions, their level of satisfaction within their supervisory relationship, and the possible relatedness between the two were examined. The analyses of the results indicated that the mentoring perceptions of the dyads were highly compatible/congruent, with the highest degree of compatibility in the subscales of Advocacy and Role Modeling. Also, the dyads indicated that Coaching, Role Modeling, and Learning Facilitation were the three most important factors in mentoring. Additionally, it was determined that both groups had high degree of satisfaction in their supervisory relationship, more so for the cooperating teachers than for the preservice teachers. Finally, Mentoring Functions (mentoring perceptions) positively correlated to the SRQ (satisfaction) of the preservice teachers.
