Abstract: The study was conducted to assess the perception of students on the teaching practice exercise of the University of Benin, Nigeria. A descriptive survey research was employed. A sample of 320 sudents were selected using the simple random sampling technique from a population of 1026 students. The instrument used is a 30 item questionnaire, with a reliability coefficient of 0.76. The content validity was determined by 3 faculty members who had been involved in the teaching practice exercise for the last three consecutive years. The data collected was analyzed using simple percentages. Student’s t-test was used to analyze the hypotheses at .05 level of significance. The findings revealed that the preparation for and assessment of students during the exercise are ineffective. However, the exercise gives the students the opportunity to acquire practical skills required for teaching. Males are more favourable disposed to the process than females except in the assessment where there is no difference in their perception. Recommendations were made to the organizers of the teaching practice exercise to adequately prepare the students for the exercise and ensure the assessment process is systematic.
