Teacher Candidate Selection and Evaluation.
Collins, Mary Lynn; And Others
Summaries are presented of three papers presented at a summer workshop on Quality Assurance in Teacher Education conducted by the Association of Teacher Educators. The general topic covered by these presentations was teacher candidate selection and evaluation. Papers focused upon the following questions: (1) What entry level criteria should be used for acceptance into teacher education programs? (2) What levels of competence should a teacher candidate demonstrate to remain in a teacher education program? (3) What are the legal implications of screening and selection procedures? (4) What criteria should be used when denying certification at the end of student teaching? (5) What are the consequences of tougher standards in teacher education programs? (6) How do grades in teacher education compare with those in other areas of academic work? and (7) What are the legal implications of "saying it like it is" when writing narratives or recommendations for future teachers?
