Comparative Analysis of the Basics of Teacher Education and Training.
Khullar, Gurdeep S.; Antonelli, George A.
A study compared and contrasted the attitudes and opinions of a diversified and randomly selected sample of educators and administrators in the field of teacher education. Study questionnaires sought opinions on six major factors of the basics of teacher training: (1) governance and organization; (2) program content; (3) pre-student teaching experience; (4) student teaching; (5) certification; and (6) entrance/exit requirements. The three major sub-populations in the survey were: teacher education staff from the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff; educators and administrators in the field of teacher education in the state of Arkansas; and administrators from the Leadership Cadre of the Association of Teacher Educators (a national organization). Data from educator responses are analyzed and compared three ways: (1) comparison of the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff responses with the responses of the state of Arkansas sample; (2) comparison of the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff responses with the national sample; and (3) comparison of the state of Arkansas sample responses with the responses of the national sample. Statistical procedures used to analyze the 40 questions relating to respondent opinions and attitudes included: percentage, mean, analysis of variance, eta, and multiple classification analysis. Detailed charts and results are included. (JD)
