Comprehensive Personel Assessment System for Teacher Education Programs.
Veldman, Donald J.
A teacher assessment system is presented which holds that there is no ideal teacher and that to maximize the potential of an individual during a teacher education program, each candidate must be known as a unique person. This system has the following characteristics: (1) design for administration through a central office, and (2) need for a psychologist as director. Data files will be maintained in a central locked office, with restricted access. Initial assessment of the teacher will take into account the following factors: (1) vision, hearing and speech, (2) academic ability, (3) academic performance, (4) adjective self description (ASD), (5) self-report inventory (SRI), (6) one-word sentence completion (OWSC), (7) directed imagination (DI), (8) biographical information (BIO), and (9) concerns of teachers. Final assessment covers the following: (1) teacher evaluation form (TEF), (2) student evaluation of teacher (SET), and (3) exit interview form. The primary purpose of the entire system is the enhancement of the value of the teacher education experience to the individual students who go through the program. Other aspects of the system include services to students, retention/termination decisions, services to faculty and administration, and adjunctive research oriented procedures. (CK)
