A Look at the Weber State College CBTE Program After Ten Years.
Adamson, Harley K.; Burke, Caseel D.
Results of a longitudinal study of graduates of a competency based teacher education program at Weber State College are presented. Selected for study were those who were in their first, third, fifth, or seventh year of teaching. Respondents were principals who assessed the work of the teachers, and teachers who evaluated their preparation program. Teachers were rated on instructional skills, classroom management, professional relations, and interpersonal relations. The teachers responded to queries about their perceived abilities in these competencies and replied to a brief opinionnaire on their college training. The principals were generally satisfied with teacher performance, rating them highest in interpersonal skills and lowest in professional relations. The former students indicated that they needed a higher level of skill in classroom management and that they were dissatisfied with field experiences. Results of both surveys are presented in tabular form, and a discussion is given of the implications for changes in the college's current teacher education program. (JD)
