Performance-Based Teacher Education/Inservice Application Project, March 1, 1977 through June 30, 1978.
Householder, Larry D.; And Others
An exemplary project was conducted at a joint vocational school to test the adaptability of the performance-based teacher education (PBTE) materials developed by the National Center for Research in Vocational Education to inservice applications for vocational education teachers at the secondary and adult levels. The activities of the project were guided primarily by a twelve-member steering committee consisting of teachers and supervisors. The project was initiated through a pre-implementation assessment of the teaching faculty's competence in selected areas as well as a series of orientation seminars for personnel involved in the project. Implementation included two phases. During phase I, implementation strategies were developed and refined based upon formative evaluation. Phase II of the project involved continuous improvement and refinement of the program over an entire academic year. Upon completion of phase II, a post-implementation assessment was conducted. Results of the pre/post-implementation assessments indicated that in general the teaching faculty improved in each competency area measured by the self-assessment instruments. (The appendices include instruments for assessment of teacher competencies, a teacher's guide to using PBTE materials, PBTE project teacher evaluation forms, and the results of teacher self-assessment and supervisor assessment of competencies.)
