Pennsylvania's Competency-Based Teacher Education Program.
Pennsylvania State Dept. of Education, Harrisburg. Bureau of Teacher Education and Certification.
This paper presents a flexible, open-ended, five-stage plan based on task analysis to evolve a longitudinal competency-based teacher education (CBTE) program. Stage 1 envisions broad use of group process in evolving a parameter of generic and specialized teacher competencies within which institutional programs are independently designed to provide graduates who have exit competencies necessary for entry-level professional success in the education professions. Stage 2 is institutionally centered and related to the institution's independent refinement of initial planning and design of CBTE programs. Stage 3 is the implementation stage centered within the institutions and related to the institution's program development that implements its Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) approved competency-based design. Stage 4 constitutes PDE implementation of competency-based standards and procedures for professional certification of the education professions. Stage 5 embodies a historical documentation and continuing research and evaluation effort spanning stages 1-3. A graphic representation of the meshing and overlap of the nonsequential stages of this longitudinal plan is attached. (PD)
