Validation of Teacher Education Curricula.
Chase, Shirley A.; And Others
Presented at the American Vocational Association Annual Convention, this paper summarizes developmental efforts being conducted at the Center for Vocational and Technical Education to establish quality modules which can be used successfully by educators in their teacher education classes as well as by in-service vocational education instructors. A project endeavor involving broad-scoped research efforts, these performance-based curriculum modules are being designed in cooperation with selected educational agencies in Missouri and Oregon. Project constraints under which the modules are being prepared include money and personnel resources, time limits in production, and the environment in which the modules are developed and tested. Validity considerations include: (1) establishing content validity by identification and development of performance and general objectives; (2) assessing face validity by identifying problems of use as the modules are developed and field-tested; and (3) assessing construct validity by testing the generalizability of the modules.
