Eastern Kentucky University: A Comprehensive Teacher Education Program/Product Evaluation.
Eastern Kentucky Univ., Richmond. Coll. of Education.
A description is given of a system for evaluating the teacher education program at Eastern Kentucky University. A list is provided of the sequence of evaluation procedures, beginning with students' pre-university entrance, and progressing through admission to the teacher education program, admission to student teaching, student teaching evaluation, completion of the baccalaureate degree, and admission to graduate school. The method of evaluation used at each stage of the process is described along with the follow-up procedures used for assessing the progress of graduates. A network of committees oversees each stage of the evaluation: (l) generic competency examination committee; (2) basic skills committee; (3) departmental evaluation committee; (4) student teaching evaluation committee; (5) college evaluation committee; and (6) follow-up committee. Flow charts illustrate the relationships of these committees, their interactive communications systems, and the structure of the hierarchy established for decision making on reciprocal responsibilities.
