An Evaluation of a Teacher Education Program.
Galluzzo, Gary R.
A field test of an evaluation of a teacher education program at Glassboro State College (New Jersey) used 19 preservice teachers as subjects. The evaluation model adopted for the study, CIPP, is an acronym for the four types of evaluation incorporated into one model: context, input, process, and product. Tests administered to students were the Minnesota Teacher Attitude Inventory (MTAI) and the National Teacher Examinations, including both the Weighted Common Examinations Test (WCET) and the appropriate Area Exam for each of the three major areas of study from which these students were drawn. Evidence from this longitudinal study indicated that the scores on the MTAI increased from the freshman year to the middle of the junior year, with the mean for this group dropping somewhat when the students were measured following student teaching. Results from analysis of academic achievement using the WCET scores indicated that there was no change in these students' academic achievement. Four possible explanations are offered for the lack of significant differences over the four years on the general studies portion of the WCET. (JM)
