Tennessee Technological University Teacher Evaluation Model--Year XI. Study of the Teacher Preparation Programs of Tennessee Technological University. Report 84-1.
Ayers, Jerry B.
A model for systematic data gathering and evaluation of programs in teacher education at Tennessee Technological University was developed in 1973. The objective was the evaluation and subsequent modification and improvement of the programs. During the eleventh year of the project, three groups of graduates (1981-83) who had completed either the B.S. or M.A., with major emphasis in the teaching field, participated in the study. Detailed information was collected on each subject by use of standardized and locally developed instruments. The first chapter of this report describes the purposes, limitations, and procedures of the study. In chapter II, comparisons are made of second and third year followup participants. Included are personal variables, principal's ratings, student evaluations, and data collected by independent observers. The third chapter presents an analysis of data for 1983 graduates and comparisons with 1981 and 1982 graduates. The final chapter contains a summary, conclusions, recommendations, and plans for the continuation of the study during 1984-85. Thirty-nine tables are included. (JD)
