The Profession Looks at Teacher Education.
Letson, Robert J.
The Secondary Education Department of the College of Education, University of Arizona conducted research, using a modified Delphi technique, to seek clarification of the behavioral goals for its teacher education program. The technique was designed to develop a consensus among experts through successive questionnaires which permit the individual to rate the importance of variables until a consensus is reached. This specific research consisted of three questionnaires: a) an open-ended questionnaire, b) a summary of opinions obtained which the participant would rate according to their importance, and c) a questionnaire involving group ratings indicating areas of consensus. Respondents to the questionnaires included administrators, cooperating teachers, student teachers, college of education faculty, students, and college supervisors. (Details of specific questionnaire items and outcomes of the research are given in the conclusion.) (JB)
