Preparing Teachers for Children with Learning and Behavioral Disorders in a Liberal Arts College: A Criterion Performance Preparation Model.
Holmgren, Byron R.
The paper describes the criterion performance approach, a competency based teacher education program for special education majors in a small, rural church-related private college (Cumberland College in Kentucky). The program serves a relatively large student body with only a few instructors. Entrance requirements are listed as is a recommended sequence of courses for majors in learning and behavior disorders. Students are administered pretests and posttests with performance criteria established. Similarly, criteria for staying in the program are noted. A sample pre/post test in a course on educational assessment of exceptional children is followed by listings of course requirements and evaluation and by 15 performance objectives. (CL)
