A Cooperative Program for Developing a Competency-Based Elementary Teacher Preparation Module in Science Education by University and School Personnel. Final Report.
Oana, Robert G.; Eiszler, Charles F.
Reported is a study designed to develop, evaluate, and revise competency-based materials in science methods education for elementary school teachers. Data were collected and analyzed relative to four questions: What are the outcomes of competency-based instruction in science at Central Michigan University? Do competency-based teacher education (CBTE) science students differ from non-CBTE students in achievement, perceptions of achievement support, attitudes and directed teaching performance? Do CBTE students who have concurrent field experiences differ from those who do not in achievement, perceptions of achievement support, attitudes toward teaching science, and performance in directed teaching? What do self-ratings of achievement measure? Conclusions and recommendations are given. There are two appendices to this final report. (They are listed as separate documents.) Appendix A contains science modules. Appendix B contains copies of the assessment instruments. (PEB)
