A Project to Develop the Technology of Competency-Based Reading Instruction.
Bergquist, Sidney R.
This report describes a project at Northwestern University (supported by a grant from the United States Office of Education Right to Read effort) to extend certain developments of the preservice teacher education program, known as the Tutorial and Clinical program in teacher education. In this program, the prospective teacher's entry into the reading education curriculum is effected with a computer-administered assessment device which gathers information about the student's past experiences to determine the student's needs for further information about reading, reading instruction, and reading-related disciplines. Another part of the assessment device consists of competency based questions about the various fields of information, knowledge of which is strongly recommended for skilled reading teaching. This information is used to generate a program of instruction for the student through the use of competency based units. The thrust of the project is to more efficiently utilize faculty talents and student time in the preparation of competent reading teachers. Continued assessment of the system is planned to facilitate modification as indicated by graduates of the system. (WR)
