Evaluation Report of Cooperative Urban Teacher Education Program. Fall 1969. Working Paper, Vol. 3 No. 1.
Chan, James; Kingsley, Elizabeth
This report on the operation of the Cooperative Urban Teacher Education Program (CUTE) for the fall semester 1969 is divided into two parts. Part 1 examines the objective data in terms of the hypotheses: 1) On each of the measures taken during the semester, students participating in the program do not change. 2) On each of the measures taken, there is no difference between students who have experienced the program and comparable students who have not experienced it. The conclusion indicated that the objective data obtained reject some of the null hypotheses, but fail to reject others. This means that if other factors were not operating, the program showed some desired effects. Part 2 examines the logs kept by students to record their reactions in order to determine if program objectives have been met or if curriculum ajustments are needed. The objectives include acceptance by the student of feelings about himself and others, and the maintenance of optimum morale. Conclusions indicate that some of the student teachers were influenced in the direction of the objectives, and the need for certain curriculum improvements were suggested. An appendix provides a description of the data collection devices used and a summary of the data. A related document is SP 004 291. (MBM)
