Research and Evaluation in Operational Competency-Based Teacher Education Programs.
Dickson, George E., Ed.
Educational Comment, n1 1975
This is a collection of papers presented at a 1974 conference on research and evaluation in operational competency-based teacher education (CBTE) programs. Two conceptual models for research and evaluation of CBTE activities were presented at the conference and the presentations of these models are the first two chapters of this collection: "A Comprehensive Medley-Soar Toledo Model for Research in Teacher Education" and "The Oregon College of Education--Teaching Research Division Paradigm for Research on Teacher Preparation." Four papers on support systems which must be involved in research and evaluation in CBTE follow: "A Computer Management System for Performance Based Curriculum (Comspec);""Field-Based Support Systems for Research and Evaluation;""From Rock Through Melon to Mush: The Place of the Teaching Center in Research and Evaluation;" and "Support Systems to In-Service CBTE Personnel, On Campus and Off Campus." The next paper is a discussion of the comprehensive research and evaluation model developed at the University of Toledo which is being used to evaluate the university CBTE program at both elementary and secondary teacher education levels. The final paper is a "Proposal for a Consortium of States to Develop a National Program to Improve Teaching Effectiveness." (Author/JA)
