The Effect of a Field-Based Teacher Education Program Upon Pupil Learning.
Harste, Jerome C.
This study investigated the 3-year effect of a field-based teacher education program, which significantly decreased teacher-pupil ratio, upon elementary school children's learning in a midwestern city. A pretest/posttest design controlling for the testing situation, the teacher, the school, and the ability of subjects (Ss) grade levels in both an experimental and a control school were compared with children's test scores at those same grade levels 4 years later (N=320). Input of the field-based teacher education program resulted in a marked decrease in Ss' learning as measured by the Iowa Test of Basic Skills at the third grade level with a nonsignificant influence on student learning at the sixth grade level, urging program evaluators to further exploration in this area.
