Experimental Evaluation of the ELS Teacher Education Program. Final Report.
Horst, Donald P.; And Others
This report presents the results of pragmatically selected tryouts of the English Language Services "Teacher Education Program" in the Regional English Language Centre in Singapore, the Central Institute of English in Hyderabad, and the Instituto Pedagogico in Caracas. American Institutes for Research, in submitting the present evaluation to the Agency for International Development, under whose aegis TEP was developed, presents criticisms and recommendations concerning various aspects of the materials and equipment involved. Findings of the feasibility check indicated that (1) it was feasible to administer the TEP course as a teacher education program (2) the course could be administered smoothly, and (3) the optimum application of the system in these three countries had not been reached. It was concluded that TEP is a "workable alternative which warrants serious consideration for a variety of purposes." Appended to this report are an outline description of TEP, a sample progress check , a teacher training costs summary, and a listing of project personnel. For further information on this self-instructional course in training teachers of English as a second language, see ED 036 795. (AMM)
