Association for the Education of Teachers in Science.
The study reported was concerned with three major areas of interest. The first was the present status (1973) and projected efforts relative to State Certification Guidelines for Competency Based Teacher Education (CBTE) programs, with special concern in secondary school science teacher certification. The second area of interest related to the existing and projected CBTE programs. The third area involved study of competencies that specific individuals involved in teacher education were using in their programs. Information was obtained from State Department of Education Secondary School Science Supervisors. Surveys were sent to all 50 states and the District of Columbia. A total of 35 responses (69 percent) was received. Data are shown on an item-by-item basis. Data are identified as representing the AETS membership group, the AACTE group and combined figures. The report is divided into two sections - that pertaining to CBTE programs in general and that relating specifically to science education. (Author/EB)
