Implementing a Model for Evaluation of Teacher Preparation Programs: Results from Two Georgia Institutions.
Adams, John R.; Elmore, Randy F.
Comparisons were made of entering teacher education students' characteristics and attitudes at Georgia Southern College (GSC) and at the University of Georgia (UGA). Major findings were that more students at GSC were female and more were transfers at UGA. Students at UGA possessed higher achievement scores and were more intelligent, assertive, and tense. GSC students possessed lower achievement scores and were found to be more conscientious and self-sufficient. No significant differences existed between GSC and UGA students in terms of personal beliefs. However, UGA students appeared to be significantly more in agreement with Dewey's teaching practices. No significant differences existed in levels of dogmatism. Test scores for each school are appended in tabular form, and a summarization of testing instruments used is included. (JD)
