An Analysis of the Data of Ranking and Rating of Teacher Competencies and Attitudes/Beliefs.
Mercer, Mary; Mercer, Walter A.
Eight competencies and five attitudes or beliefs needed by teachers in desegregated school settings were ranked by teacher educators from 60 institutions according to their perceptions of the priority they should receive during teacher training. Teacher educators also gave their perceptions of their institutions' performance in providing training for each competency. The perceptions were solicited through a survey instrument. Findings indicated that all of the competencies and attitudes/beliefs were given high priority by the teacher educators. Teacher educators perceived their institutions as being moderately successful in attempts to develop the competenceis and attitudes/beliefs in prospective teachers. Implications for teacher preparation programs are discussed, tables of data are included, and the survey instrument and a listing of participating institutions are appended. (Author/MK)
