PBTE--Issues and Current Resources.
COP Bulletin, v1
This paper outlines some of the issues and identifies information and resources available in the field of performance-based teacher education (PBTE). Issues include (a) performance or product--concerning the chain of accountability from teacher trainers to teacher trainee, resting on the characteristic of demonstrated performance (with the teacher trainee associated with the term "performance" and the pupils associated with the term "product"); (b) assessment of performance-based teacher education--stemming from the goals and objectives that have been set for teacher education and ultimately for children's learning; (c) problems and issues--including the questions of what are the competencies to be measured, how will they be assessed, and is there more than one way for a pupil to respond. Listings of available resources include books, monographs, manuals, publications, newsletters, learning materials, catalogs, and groups with a national focus regarding PBTE. (JCW)
