Institutional Assessment of Prospective Educational Personnel in Undergraduate Programs. A Study to Assess the Quality of the Preparation and Performance of Educational Personnel: Study Report No. 2.
Illinois State Board of Education, Springfield, Dept. of Planning, Research and Evaluation.
This is the second of three technical reports that focus on the hiring and evaluation of educational personnel in Illinois. Practices used by colleges and universities to recruit, select, and assess prospective educational personnel at the undergraduate level are presented in this report. A questionnaire was sent to persons responsible for all state-approved educational preparation programs. Survey instruments had been partially completed by State Board of Education staff based on preexistent data files from the institutions, and respondents were asked to revise or provide information as necessary in order to supplement and update file information. Data presented reflect information from 148 completed survey instruments representing programs in elementary, secondary, special subject area (K-12), and special education programs at 53 colleges and universities. Findings are reported with respect to the five parts of the questionnaire: (1) admission to the institution; (2) admission to education programs; (3) admission to student teaching; (4) graduation and recommendation for certification; and (5) general perspective of the program. Tables which show both the questions asked and the distribution of responses are provided in an appendix. (TE)
