The Teacher-Media Librarian Program at Trenton State College: A Follow-Up Evaluation of Its Effectiveness in Meeting the Needs of Its Graduates. Societal Factors.
Romano, Francis A.
The purpose of this practicum was to comply with the recommendations of the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education Evaluation Team by evaluating the competencies developed by the Teacher-Media Librarian Program at Trenton State College. A two-part questionnaire was developed that covered the teacher education competencies and the media librarian competencies of the program. The questionnaire was sent to the 50 graduates of the program from 1973-1975. The data were analyzed by using the mean rating for each competency listed on the questionnaire for evaluation by the graduates. The findings indicated that the graduates felt that both areas of the program more than adequately prepared them to be a teacher or media librarian. However, the graduates identified two teacher education competencies and one media librarian competency as weaknesses within the program. In addition, other competencies in both areas of the program were identified as having great strength within the program. Based on the findings, recommendations were made for correcting the weaknesses that were identified by the graduates. The recommendations concerned changes that should be made in two of the program's courses. A copy of the questionnaire is appended. (Author/RC)
