Presented is a summary of the current state of science teacher education based on questionnaire responses gathered in 1972 from American and Canadian colleges and universities. The document consists of four sections. The first three sections are concerned with programs and courses offered for K-12, elementary, and secondary school teachers. A specified schema format is used to analyze the programs in terms of content, strategy, outcome, and evidence. Five types of information are provided for each institution: the name and location of the institution, name and address of the information supplier, program descriptions, analytical results presented in the schema format, and lists of available materials. The fourth section contains responses which cannot be adapted to the format. The authors indicate that the schema presentation is designed to provide opportunities of examining the role of performance-based teacher education programs in connection with their intended outcomes and evidence of their objective attainment. The document is published through the joint effort of the Association for Education of Teachers in Science and the ERIC Information Analysis Center for Science, Mathematics, and Environmental Education at the Ohio State University.
