Methods of Assessing Teacher Education Students. Conference Proceedings.
Ashburn, Elizabeth A.; Fisher, Robert L.
Participants in this conference of educators, convened to consider methods of evaluating teacher education students, focused upon the relationship between candidate quality and teacher effectiveness. Questions under consideration included: (1) pre-admission field experiences students should demonstrate; (2) optimum scores on aptitude and achievement tests; (3) grade point average on entrance to teacher education programs; (4) screening processes during teacher education programs; (5) selection-out procedures employed in the programs; and (6) exit criteria. The agenda established for the conference asked participants to: (1) exchange information about current inquiry efforts regarding the quality of the teacher applicant pool; (2) understand what efforts are underway to determine reliable admission and exit criteria relative to successful teacher performance; (3) appreciate the various meaures being used and the reliability they hold for making quality judgments; and (4) develop a tentative set of guidelines for further study of these issues and concerns. An annotated bibliography of 97 journal articles and documents in ERIC on assessment of preservice teacher education students is appended. (JD)
