A Report on the Identification, Classification, and Ranking of Competencies Appropriate for Adult Basic Education Teachers.
Mocker, Donald W.
A summary of a research project, the publication is an initial attempt to provide the field of adult basic education (ABE) with a systematic, viable approach to the problem of competency identification for ABE teachers on a national basis. The list of ranked knowledge, behaviors, and attitudes appropriate for ABE teachers represents the most complete list of competencies in the field to date. The timely report has been written specifically for staff development personnel, State directors of adult education, professors of adult education, competency based program designers, and directors of local ABE programs. A list of 291 ranked competencies (established by 234 ABE teachers and administrators representing 33 States) indicates which competencies should receive high and lower order priority. Competencies have been classified by three groups: knowledge (ability to recall and recognize specifics and universals), behavior (demonstration of ability to perform), and attitude (ability to develop, receive, and respond to feelings, interests, and values). Competencies, in addition, are categorized according to: scope and goal of adult education, curriculum, ABE learner, and instructional process. The appendix includes a background of the study and the Adult Basic Education Teacher Competence Inventory, from which the ranked competencies were developed. (EA)
