A Comparison of CBTE and Conventional Teacher Education Programs.
Goldenberg, Ronald
This study utilized elementary teachers who had completed either competency-based (CBTE) or conventional teacher education programs and their principals to evaluate undergraduate preparation for classroom teaching. A 15 item questionnaire was administered and the data analyzed. Results obtained from the analysis of the teachers' data indicated perceived differences in the emphases of CBTE and conventional teacher education programs. Program emphasis for CBTE-prepared teachers was on instruction, whereas an emphasis on structuring the classroom environment emerged for conventionally prepared teachers. Principals were unable to detect differences between competency-based or conventional preparation. Analysis of variance revealed non-significant F-ratios for both the principals and teachers groups.
