Alaskan Vocational Education Pre-Service Teacher Competencies. A Preliminary Study.
Northern Inst. for Research, Training, and Development, Inc., Anchorage, AK.
A project was conducted to develop an interagency consortium for Alaska for the purpose of annually identifying and updating the preservice training needs for Alaska vocational educational personnel and to prepare a report on the recommendations from the consortium to be issued to institutions of higher education offering one or more preservice majors in vocational education. The project consisted of four phases: (1) investigate vocational education teacher competencies from related research and assessments, (2) design assessment instrument for pilot testing and reaction, (3) establish panel of reactors to evaluate and rate competencies and recommend changes, and (4) recommend assessment for future use. One of the findings was that there is a high degree of agreement with respect to the individual competencies rated by panel members. A significant percentage (94%) was rated 3.0 or above on a Likert-type scale (5=critical; 1=not needed). Panel reactors rated an overall high need with respect to individual occupational services areas within vocational education for the next five years. Highest general cluster categories rated by panel members included instructional planning, evaluation, management, and implementation. (The teacher competencies assessment instrument and the results of the preservice teachers competencies are appended.) (LRA)
