The Prediction of Large Group Rankings of Teacher Competencies through the Use of Small Group Consensus.
Coker, Homer
A preliminary step in implementing competency-based teacher education (CBTE) is the generation of a list of teacher competencies adapted for the local situation. One method of adaptation is to have selected competencies ranked in order of importance by professional educators within the school district or college. A less expensive and time-consuming method is to use a committee, representative of the population, to rank the competencies. The purpose of this study was to determine if the rankings of a small group would correlate highly with those of a large group. Two lists of competencies were ranked by a small sample group and the total teacher population of Carroll County, Georgia. The data indicated that in this study the composite rankings by the small group were a highly successful predictor of the rankings by the total group. (Tables illustrating ranking results and correlations are included.) (JS)
