An Empirical Method for Validating Teacher Competencies for Competency Based Teacher Education Programs.
Cohen, Eli; Mosley, William J.
Described is an approach (developed by the Center for Innovation in Teaching the Handicapped) to resolving the following three performance based teacher education development issues: how to identify competencies; how to validate competencies; and how to assign competencies to modules. It is explained that competency lists must be acquired and compiled to form a competency statement; competencies must be rated in importance (via questionnaire) by experienced teachers; and competencies must be clustered (using empirical methods) according to data collected from teachers.
