Standards for Evaluating Teacher Education Programs in Higher Education Institutions.
This set of standards for evaluating teacher education programs is organized into seven categories: (1) targets (social, institutional, role, and learner expectations); (2) mission, goals, and purposes; (3) objectives; (4) resource allocation; (5) programs; (6) outcomes; and (7) evaluation. The set of standards is based on the assumption that programs for teacher preparation should be a coherent, clear, and integrated attempt to prepare personnel for education roles in existing institutions. It also assumes that existing schools have societal, institutional, and learner goals that personnel in such roles are committed to implement and develop. The set of standards is organized as a series of questions which determine the existence of a characteristic. This characteristic, once determined, suggests that a value judgment about the actual operation of a program should be made with care taken to base the judgment on observable events rather than on rhetoric. More detailed questions may be added as appropriate, particularly when a specific innovation is being tested. (Author/JMF)
