A Needs Assesment Model for Conducting Follow-Up Studies of Teacher Education and Training.
Borich, Gary D.
This article presents a methodological model that can be employed to conduct follow-up studies of preservice and inservice teacher training programs. The model first defines a training need by identifying "what should be" and "what is" in the knowledge, performance, and consequence (reaction to behavior) competencies of trainees. The distance between these two poles is an index of the program's effectiveness in teacher training. The needs assessment model, which can be used for self, summative, or formative evaluations, is then implemented through the: 1) listing of competencies, 2) surveying of inservice teachers for competency attainment, 3) ranking of competencies according to the level of importance and the level of attainment, 4) comparing of high priority competencies to the content of the training program, and 5) revising of the program or the competency. The model can be adapted and extended to suit other institutions and purposes. (CJ)
