Teaching Evaluation in Vocational and Career Education.
Henry, Marcelett C.
The major purpose of the study was to develop a process for assessing teacher competence in vocational and career education as required by California Assembly Bill 293, known as the Stull Act. The study collected data through: a questionnaire administered to teachers, administrators, and students; research site visits; interviews of administrators and vocational and career education coordinators; and a review of the guidelines used at each research site for the implementation of the Stull Act. Six public school districts and one county program participated in the study. Study findings revealed that teachers, administrators, and students have different perceptions of teacher competence, and they differ on the stated goals for vocational and career education. The study indicated a need for greater communication between teachers and administrators in understanding basic goals and concepts of vocational and career education. Teachers and administrators need to become more knowledgeable about the requirements of the Stull Act and its implementation as required by the State of California.
