A RESEARCH PROJECT TO DETERMINE CURRICULA FOR TEACHER EDUCATION AND CORRELATION OF NATIONAL TEACHER EXAMINATION SCORES AND GRADE POINT AVERAGES.
HALL, JERRY A.
THE GENERAL DESIGN OF THIS STUDY WAS TO (1) SELECT A REPRESENTATIVE SAMPLE OF ALL 1962 AND 1963 BACHELOR'S DEGREE GRADUATES FROM NORTH CAROLINA INSTITUTIONS WHO QUALIFIED FOR THE CLASS A TEACHER'S CERTIFICATE, (2) TO ANALYZE THEIR COLLEGIATE TRANSCRIPTS BY COURSE AREAS, AND (3) TO CORRELATE THEIR SCORES ATTAINED ON THE COMMON EXAMINATION OF THE NATIONAL TEACHER EXAMINATION WITH THEIR OVERALL ACADEMIC GRADE-POINT AVERAGES. THE SAMPLE WAS 2,274 PERSONS SELECTED RANDOMLY FROM APPROXIMATELY 9,000 PERSONS QUALIFIED FOR THE CLASS A TEACHER'S CERTIFICATE. RESULTS OF THE STUDY REINFORCED THE CONCEPT THAT PROSPECTIVE TEACHERS' CURRICULUMS DIFFER GREATLY ACCORDING TO THE LEVEL OR AREA FOR WHICH CERTIFICATED. PROSPECTIVE SECONDARY SCHOOL TEACHERS TEND TO TAKE MORE WORK IN THEIR AREA OF SPECIALIZATION THAN IS REQUIRED BY THE STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA. THE DERIVED COEFFICIENT OF CORRELATION OF .635 REPRESENTS A HIGH RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE GRADE-POINT AVERAGES AND SCORES ON THE COMMON EXAMINATION OF THE NATIONAL TEACHER EXAMINATION. (WB)
