An Illustrated Model for the Evaluation of Teacher Education Graduates.
Sandefur, J. T.
Following the acceptance and implementation of the new National Standards for Accreditation of Teacher Education, the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education prepared this model for evaluating teacher education graduates as an aid to education institutions. The paper briefly reviews research on teachers and evaluation and places the research into three thematic clusters: teaching methodology, effective climate of the classroom, and characteristics of teachers. On the basis of generalizations drawn from this research, the model suggests that the proposed evaluative data can be derived from four sources: career line data (systematic collection of data on wastage from teaching, promotions, advanced degrees, writing, and research); direct classroom observations (two suggested systems: the Classroom Observation Record and a 14-category modification of the Flanders system and Hough variation of interaction analysis); student, peer, and supervisor ratings (for example, the Student Evaluation of Teaching developed by Heldman and Peck); and standarized measures. The document closes with recommendations for utilizing the model and a discussion of the cost. (JA)
