Ayers, Jerry B.
An eight-year program of evaluation of students and graduates of the teacher education school at Tennessee Technological University is described. This evaluation project culminated in an intensive longitudinal study of graduates since 1973. The purpose of the study was to provide information for faculty and administrators of teacher education programs in order to help them make decisions pertinent to curriculum evaluation and long-range development plans. Data for this study were collected by mail surveys, interviews with teachers and their principals, and observations in the classrooms of the graduates. The data for the current year of the study and comparisons with earlier years is presented and interpreted in both tabular and narrative form. An analysis of the evaluation model is presented with discussion of its ectieffectiveness and further development. (JD)
