Three Models for Conducting Follow-Up Studies of Teacher Education and Training.
Borich, Gary D.
This paper presents three methodological models that can be employed in conducting follow-up studies of preservice and inservice teacher training. The needs assessment model evaluates effectiveness by the discrepancy between "what is" and "what should be." The relative gain model assesses relative pupil improvement. The process-product model of evaluation tests the appropriateness of behaviors taught to teachers and to what degree the program can produce these behaviors. Implementation steps for each model are included, along with a section of "case studies" that show the different applications possible with each model. (CJ)
