CASE STUDY, THE EVALUATION OF FIRST-YEAR TEACHER GRADUATES OF MADONNA COLLEGE.
LAURIANA, SISTER M.
TO DETERMINE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF ITS TEACHER EDUCATION PROGRAM, MADONNA COLLEGE COLLECTED INFORMATION ON THE FIRST YEAR OF TEACHING OF 86 OF ITS 101 STUDENTS WHO WERE RECOMMENDED FOR CERTIFICATION DURING THE PAST 6 YEARS. THE PRINCIPALS EMPLOYING THESE GRADUATES COMPLETED AN EIGHT-ITEM OPEN-ENDED QUESTIONNAIRE ON HIGH AND LOW POINTS OF PERFORMANCE AND PREPARATION, AND RATED THE TEACHER (VIA CHECKLIST) AS A PERSON, A PROFESSIONAL WORKER, AND A MEMBER OF THE COMMUNITY. THE RATINGS SHOWED MOST OF THE TEACHERS TO BE GROWING NORMALLY OR BETTER IN PROFESSIONAL COMPETENCE. TWENTY-EIGHT PERCENT OF THE ADMINISTRATORS MADE RECOMMENDATIONS FOR PERFORMANCE IMPROVEMENT (24 PERCENT FOR STRONGER DISCIPLINE), AND 15 PERCENT FOR PREPARATION IMPROVEMENT. NINETY-ONE PERCENT INDICATED THAT IT WAS NOT NECESSARY FOR THE COLLEGE SUPERVISOR TO VISIT THE TEACHER. ALL BUT ONE OF THE TEACHERS WERE INVITED TO RETURN TO THE SCHOOL SYSTEM. AT LEAST 90 PERCENT OF THE TEACHERS WERE RATED FAVORABLE OR BETTER ON RELATIONSHIPS WITH PUPILS, PARENTS, FACULTY, AND COMMUNITY. IN OVERALL EVALUATION, FIVE-SIXTHS OF THE TEACHERS WERE RATED ABOVE "AVERAGE" (59 PERCENT "GOOD" AND 23 PERCENT "SUPERIOR"). (LC)
