An Evaluation Model for Competency Based Teacher Preparatory Programs.
Denton, Jon J.
This discussion describes an evaluation model designed to complement a curriculum development project, the primary goal of which is to structure a performance based program for preservice teachers. Data collected from the implementation of this four-phase model can be used to make decisions for developing and changing performance objectives and program components. This model provides two classes of information: data on program operations and data on student achievement. The initial component (phase one) of the evaluation model serves two assessment functions: student achievement and program effectiveness. This information is obtained from a formative test with objective-type test items. The achievement and perception data collected in phase one provide information for short term maintenance decisions for the coursework preceding student teaching. Phase two involves the confirmation of the stability of the assessment instruments. Two measurement processes constitute this phase: final cognitive assessment and observation of classroom teaching skills. Phase three centers on assessing the ability to apply teaching skills emphasized in the course work preceding student teaching. Phase IV of the model expands the effort to collect "consequence of instruction" information. Graduates of the program are asked to evaluate their preparation after one semester of classroom teaching experience on a brief questionnaire. (The report also includes a mathematical decision model, used when multiple sets of data are collected in determining whether the major goals for evaluation programs are being attained.) (DMT)
