The Stanford Secondary Teacher Education Program 1959-1969: A Preliminary Analysis of Graduate Career Patterns.
Trinchero, Robert L.; Shavelson, Richard J.
This paper reports the results of a longitudinal study of graduates of the Secondary Teacher Education Program (STEP) 1959-1969. The sample included 94.6 percent (N=901) of all graduates during the 10-year period. The information collected was analyzed to answer the following questions: 1) How many graduates are in secondary teaching, other education-related positions, and non-educational occupations? 2) Are there differences among the three above-mentioned career groups in their evaluation of the STEP experience, in their performance on pre-admission measures, and in their personal characteristics profiles? 3) What are the teaching situations of secondary school teachers who graduated from STEP? 4) What are the reasons given by those who left teaching, and can critical attrition years be identified in terms of those reasons? Results are discussed in reference to teacher selection, training, and placement. (Author/LP)
