Competency-Based Education Development Project. Final Report.
Estes, Kenneth A.
The purposes of the project at Western Kentucky University were a) to serve as a data-collection agency for the National Project, b) to assist the Teacher Corps faculty in developing competency-based instruction, and c) to monitor the effectiveness of the competency-based instruction provided by the teacher education faculty. Three indicators to ascertain the degree of success were employed: a) intern feedback, b) organization of a competency-based curriculum and c) degree of faculty involvement. Measurement instruments included a questionnaire, opinionnaire, and interviews administered to 36 Teacher Corps Interns. Although 11 of the 36 original Teacher Corps Interns terminated their association with the program for various reasons, it is the feeling of the Teacher Corps directors that if the competency-based program had been instituted earlier in the program, it would have met with greater success. Data obtained suggested that the interns developed a positive overall feeling toward competency-based instruction and the program. Intern responses indicated that they "agreed" that competency-based education was superior to traditional education. The project stimulated seven of the teacher education faculty to become involved in competency-based teacher education. Appendixes are included. (Author/MJM)
