Ayers, Jerry B.
Recently, a model was developed for use in gathering data and making evaluations in a systematic manner. The purpose of this study was to adapt the model for evaluation of the graduates of the teacher preparation program of Tennessee Technological University. A sample of 59 graduates of the teacher preparation program of the university, who were teaching in the schools of Tennessee, was selected. The graduates completed questionnaires about the teacher preparation program, their experiences on the job, and a personality measure. Principals and students of the subjects rated the individuals using three instruments. Especially trained research assistants visited the subjects on two occasions during the 1973-74 school year and gathered data using interaction analysis and other observation techniques. Results of the study indicated that the adapted model could be used for gathering data in a systematic manner about the graduates of the teacher education program. In turn, the data can be used for improving the teacher preparation programs of the university. In general, the results of the application of the model indicated the graduates had many of the characteristics of good teachers as reported in the literature. (Author/JA)
