Evaluation of a Performance-Based Program in Teacher Education: Recommendations for Implementation.
Clegg, Ambrose A.; Ochoa, Anna
The Experimental Model for Teacher Education was implemented during the academic year 1969-70. Its major objective was to build a field-based program using predefined behavioral objectives and their accompanying performance criteria with an instructional program integrating theoretical knowledge with practical experience. Twenty trainees were selected for the program on the basis of grade-point average and a personal interview. Administrative arrangements were made to allow program participants to take their professional courses on a pass-fail basis. Seminars were coordinated with concurrent classroom experience at progressively increasing levels of responsibility in three types of school: inner-city, urban, and suburban. Cooperating teachers in these schools were designated"clinical associates" and provided with inservice training. Of the 20 trainees, 17 completed the program successfully and were certified. Of these, 12 had obtained teaching positions as of June 1970. Detailed recommendations for program improvement include closer involvement of cooperating schools, previous rather than concurrent training of clinical associates, and involvement of trainees in developing objectives and criteria. (The report includes sequence charts of program development and lists of sample performance objectives and evaluation criteria.) (RT)
