Criteria for Describing and Assessing Competency Based Programs.
Burke, J. Bruce; And Others
This monograph contains a set of criteria to be used in helping program planners and administrators define competency based teacher education (CBTE) in the contexts of their situations. The criteria are the result of the collective work of individuals at 12 institutions of teacher education, and have been used: (1) by individuals in operational CBTE programs to help determine the extent to which their program is competency based; (2) by individuals about to embark on a program to develop a CBTE program to suggest "tasks to be completed" in their developmental process; and (3) in a modified form, to ascertain common elements of CBTE programs existing in a state system of higher education. This monograph is divided into three parts. The first part contains both a short and an amplified version of the instrument. The second part contains an item by item discussion of the criteria contained in the instrument; for each criterion this section includes a criterion statement; indicators for that criterion; and a discussion of the criterion, the indicators, and the author's rationale. The last part contains descriptions of how institutions have used the instrument and includes case study reports. (BD)
