The Use of Teaching Performance Tests to Assess the Ability of Prospective Teachers to Relate Lower-Order Learnings in PBTE Programs.
Waimon, Morton D.; And Others
The objective of this research was to develop optimum training conditions in the use of teacher performance tests (TPT). In order to attain this objective, TPT's were used as assessment instruments. This was believed necessary because the laws of learning indicate that improvement will not occur unless reinforcement follows learning. Subjects were prospective secondary teachers completing student teaching requirements. All seniors had to complete TPT under four sequentially different nine-week treatments. During each phase assessment, procedures were varied. Results indicate that optimum training conditions exist when reinforcement is made contingent on the attainment of prespecified minimum performance standards. (Author)
