An Evaluation of the Cheektowaga-D'Youville-Medaille-Sloan Program in Competency-Based Teacher Education.
Shuell, Thomas J.; And Others
This report evaluates an ongoing competency-based teacher education project involving two local colleges and two school districts. Following indepth interviews with selected project personnel, 1 66-item questionnaire was constructed covering the following six basic areas of concern: (a) program orientation, (b) program objectives, (c) communication, (d) role definition, (e) attitudes, and (f) modules. This questionnaire was distributed to current as well as former participants. Major recommendations included the following: (a) program goals and objectives and criteria for competent teaching must be more precisely defined; (b) modules should be rewritten to include descriptions of objectives and assessment criteria, and specification of the approximate amount of time required to complete the module; (c) the role of cooperating teachers should be more adequately defined; (d) the role of college personnel should be changed to include more field-based involvement and the assumption of more responsibility for the total education of the intern; and (e) participants should be more adequately prepared for involvement in the program. (Appendixes include the questionnaire, interview questions, letters and memorandums to participants, the evaluation proposal, a history of the program development, an article entitled "A New Style of Certification," a list of teacher competencies, and a list of behavioral objectives.)
