A System for Documenting and Evaluating the Experiences of Pre/Inservice Teachers.
deVoss, Gary; And Others
Ohio State University's College of Education has created the Student Information System (SIS) as a means of receiving feedback and evaluating its teacher education programs. SIS is based on the documented experiences, from the variety of perspectives of those involved in the teacher education process, and will be used for program planning, accreditation, and student advisement. There are four components to the system: (1) quantitative and descriptive records on each student; (2) assessments of candidates' skills by cooperating teachers, peers, and college supervisors; (3) narratives of the teacher education experience, in the form of summative, supervisor, and students' self analyses; and (4) descriptions of the context, or environment of on- and off-campus settings, by all those involved in the learning experience. SIS is designed to monitor students' skill development at many stages and takes into consideration the interrelated factors that shape teachers. This document presents: the reasons for creating the SIS (Section I); the general background of the SIS (Section II); and the components of the SIS (Section III). Section IV of this document presents the instrumentation of the SIS, including tables describing the SIS components and a cross section of a stage in professional development illustrating the components.
