NUSTEP, A Performance-Based Teacher Education Program: The First Four Years, 1969-1973.
Kelley, Edgar A.; Zimmer, John W.
Research evaluating the Nebraska University Teacher Education Program (NUSTEP) is included in this document. Areas of focus are a) the effects of the program on objectively rated academic performance, b) participant attitudes, and c) the effects of the program on generating research. Presented results are shown to indicate that NUSTEP students prefer the theoretical portion of the program as opposed to the practicum training sessions and that NUSTEP-trained teachers demonstrate a greater ability to produce pupil achievement. Research programs currently under development are presented in the remainder of the paper. (JB)
