Developing Competency Based Teacher Education Resource Modules in Comprehension and Diagnostic Evaluation of Reading Progress.
Malak, Joseph Francis
The purposes of this study were (1) to design four resource modules--Diagnostic Evaluation of Reading Progress; Developing Comprehension: Analysis of Meaning; Developing Comprehension: Synthesis and Generalization; Developing Comprehension: Information Acquisition--and (2) to determine whether an instructional module developed from one of these resource modules can be implemented effectively in a field situation. Experts in the specific areas encompassed by each module provided competencies, criterion behaviors, and learning experiences which were synthesized with inputs from the literature into tentative resource modules. The Diagnostic Evaluation of Reading Progress module was field tested at the University of Pittsburgh using ten full-time female students in the master's program in reading. The results of the field test revealed that students were able to progress at their own rates and to work in areas of individual needs and interests, that a competency based teacher education program utilizing modular design can be implemented feasibly, and that all students responded positively to competency based teacher education and most were willing to participate again in such a program.
