Basic Skills of Prospective Secondary Teachers: Overview.
Dupuis, Mary M.
An overview of the assessment of the basic skills of prospective secondary level education students at Pennsylvania State University is provided in this paper. Assessment in the areas of reading, writing, and speaking was conducted as a response to public criticism of teachers' skills and as a means of meeting a competency requirement in the teacher education program. The results of the first testing of 47 students are discussed in this and in three related papers. This paper notes results indicating significant correlations between reading and writing scores and between writing and speaking scores, but not between speaking and reading scores. Questions for further consideration are listed. (MKM)
