Performance-Based Professional Education Curricula. Final Report. Volume II. Research Report. Research and Development Series No. 140.
Hamilton, James B.; And Others
This report presents the design, procedures, and findings of the advanced testing of 100 modules in a set of performance-based vocational teacher education curricular materials. (The modules are based on 384 secondary/postsecondary level performance elements, including program, instructional, and other elements.) In the first of five sections the study purpose of providing user feedback for refining materials and information for developing specified competencies is identified. Instrumentation (teacher performance assessment form, pre-treatment performance estimate, and teacher trainee and resource person feedback booklets) is described. Test site and module selection are discussed, and section 2 reviews site coordinator training procedures. The third section provides module-by-module and across-module analyses. Findings reported in section 4 include the following: (1) teacher trainee pre- and post-performance self-estimates increased for all modules; all modules were rated effective; (2) resource persons rated teacher trainees above "good" on tested modules; and (3) 75% of resource persons felt learning activities were helpful. Also examined are teacher trainee and resource person characteristics and feedback. The final section sets forth conclusions and recommendations. Appendixes contain instrumentation forms, evaluation, study, and results. (Volume 1, which documents the curricula development processes, and volume 3, the module development handbook, are available separately--see note.) (CSS)
