Assessing Student Attitudes and Behaviors in an Open Teacher Education Learning Environment.
Cadenhead, Kenneth; Todd, Peggy
This paper discusses the development and uses of an instrument to assiss attitudes and behaviors in students adjusting to a new learning environment. The pilot program in personalized education, designed and implemented at Auburn University, was constructed around a framework of four global teacher roles (diagnostician, facilitator, interactor, innovator). In order to isolate those attitudes and behaviors that seemed to be important for successful performance in the program, data were obtained from students who had completed the program. These data were synthesized and presented in the form of a 31-item instrument, which was designed to reflect student self-assessment. Students taking the course were asked to complete the form three times during the two-quarter program. Group results are presented in two tables. Plans are being made to revise the checklist, which will be used in counseling students. (PD)
