Survey of the Criteria for the Selection of Undergraduate Candidates for Admission to Teacher Training.
Carpenter, James A.
This report studied the selective processes and criteria for admission of undergraduates to teacher education programs in 180 American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (AACTE) member institutions. A questionnaire of Criteria for Admission to Teacher Education was the basis of the survey. The questionnaire contained alternative statements after each major question and the survey offered resulting statistical summaries on each of these questions. Condensed summaries of the statistical results were also given. Some specific conclusions on the admission requirements of undergraduates to teacher education programs were 1) Academic attainment is the most important criteria; 2) Some institutions are moving toward competency-based programs; 3) There is a desire for more indepth training for candidates. A list of the participating institutions and a copy of the questionnaire are included. (BRB)
