Involvement of AACTE Institutions in Competency Based Teacher Education: A Quest for Quality in Teacher Preparation.
Sandefur, Walter S.; Nicklas, Willis L.
A followup study was done in 1980 to determine if trends were evident in the involvement of American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (AACTE) institutions in competency based teacher education programs (CBTE). The results were compared with those obtained in 1973, 1975, and 1977, revealing some leveling of trends. It was found that fewer institutions were involved in planning or exploring CBTE in 1980, yet more institutions were operating full-scale CBTE programs in 1980 (thirteen percent) than in 1977 (nine percent), or in 1975 (eight percent). A list summarizing the major findings is presented along with tables showing the following data: involvement of AACTE institutions in CBTE programs from 1975 to 1980; important changes in CBTE program plans, 1975-1980; amount of CBTE institution involvement by state; and state comparisons of the greatest and least institutional involvement in CBTE, 1975-1980.
