Development, Proficiency and Need of Teacher Competencies.
Bartos, Robert B.
The need for and proficiency in 15 competencies as viewed by practicing teachers are examined, along with teacher perceptions of where the competencies were developed. Major elements for which responses were solicited were planning instruction, managing instruction, providing the learning environment, evaluation, and being a professional. Summary responses to the survey are presented in rank order of perceived need and compared to proficiency and source of competency. From the responses it was determined that: (1) little relationship existed between the perceived need and the extent of proficiency for that need; (2) rankings are consistent with other literature dealing with teacher needs; (3) the relationship of needs to proficiency in this study differs from other studies; (4) there is little relationship between perceived need of teachers and instruction at the undergraduate level; (5) proficiency obtained from teacher training institutions is in areas of low-ranked need; and (6) work experience and perceived need show some relationship. Relevance of the findings to undergraduate and inservice education are noted. (MJB)
