An Experimental Project to Develop Evaluation Criteria for Competency-Based Instruction through Video Recording and Micro-Teaching Techniques Within the Student Teaching Experience in Business Education with Special Emphasis in Typewriting.
Meiss, Jack L.
The necessity for program modification to meet existing local needs and the current thrust toward competency-based instruction led to this curriculum development project. The intent of the project was to determine the feasibility of incorporating educational innovations within the Business Education Student Teaching Program in order to begin to solve instructional and evaluative problems. Results of the project include the following: (a) a professional semester suited to unique local conditions, (b) development of procedures and evaluative criteria in the use of microteaching techniques and video processes for evaluating student teaching performances, with special emphasis on competency-based teaching behaviors, and (c) creation of two observation rating forms for use in microteaching sessions and two observation rating forms for competency-based teaching/learning behaviors, which facilitate evaluation of knowledge and performance competencies that are applicable to all levels of education. The project resulted in recommendations for future development of procedures and resources on competency-based teacher training in the area of typewriter instruction. Of particular value would be the development of a bank of video tapes which would demonstrate effective teaching strategies on specific competencies in the teaching of typewriting. (Author/JS)
