Second Report of the Committee on Program Research and Evaluation.
Cryan, John R.; And Others
This report is concerned with investigation of the personal characteristics of students entering the teacher education program at the University of Georgia, Elementary Education Division. Information regarding undergraduate students admitted to the division's program in teacher preparation at the elementary, early childhood, and middle school levels was collected. Since admission is allowed at various points in the academic sequence, the entering groups during the fall, winter, and spring semesters 1974-75 included freshmen, sophomores, and juniors. A total of eight instruments were used to obtain data. This information included the students' former environment, experience, and performance; the students' intellectual aptitudes; the students' personality characteristics, values, beliefs, and attitudes; and, additionally, the students' reactions to certain educational concepts. The value of the data collected lies in its comparative uses and its use in follow-up studies planned by this research group. (DMT)
