Adult Basic Education Teacher Competency Inventory--Idaho.
Zinn, Lorraine M.
The report is based on a survey of the Adult Basic Education (ABE) teachers in Idaho. A total of 72 usable returns were received, representing a 70 percent response rate. Demographic data for the Idaho respondents and their ranking of the competencies both in terms of their perception of their own competencies and in terms of their opinions as to competencies needed by ABE teachers are presented and discussed. Responses from the survey are discussed in terms of a profile of Idaho ABE teachers and their training priorities and degree of competency. Recommendations are made in four general categories: preservice training and teacher preparation, inservice training, teacher certification in ABE, and ongoing and periodic assessment of training needs. The revised Adult Basic Education Teacher Competency Inventory and a table showing a comparison of mean scores on terms in the ABE learner category are appended. (BP)
