Recommended Standards for Teacher Education. The Accreditation of Basic and Advanced Preparation Programs for Professional School Personnel.
American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education, Washington, DC.
The recommended standards for teacher education presented in this booklet are the result of a 3-year study conducted by the Evaluative Criteria Study Committee of AACTE. The recommendations are presented in two major sections, one concerned with standards for basic teacher education programs (programs for the initial preparation of teachers through the fifth-year level, including M.A.T. programs) and one concerned with advanced programs (post-baccalaureate programs for the advanced preparation of teachers and the preparation of other professional school personnel). Standards relevant to each of these two program levels are further classified according to the following categories: (1) curriculums, (2) faculty, (3) students, (4) resources and facilities, and (5) evaluation, program review, and planning. Each standard is defined in a one-sentence statement which is accompanied by a general explanation and by specific questions intended to aid in interpretation and application of the standards. The introduction to the booklet presents background information related to the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) and to the purposes and process of accreditation. Emphasis is placed on the attempt which has been made to maintain flexibility and "to develop standards which encourage individuality, imagination, and innovation in institutional planning." (ES)
