Alternative Strategies and Foci for Teacher Education.
Schalock, H. Del
The growing dissatisfaction with present approaches to teacher education, the availability of increasingly analytic tools in teacher education, and the demand for greater accountability in education generally have given rise to the concept of performance-based criteria for teacher certification. Central to the question of performance-based certification is the issue of whether performance beyond the knowledge level should be defined in terms of teaching behavior, or some combination thereof. Issues that arise in relation to either of these criteria include means of determining desired outcomes, methods of demonstrating and measuring these outcomes, and the relationship between the criteria and the teacher training program. As one moves closer to the ideal of criteria based on the products of teacher behavior, the development of training programs and certification procedures necessarily become more complex. (RT)
