Institutional Assessment of Prospective Educational Personnel in Graduate Programs. A Study to Assess the Quality of the Preparation and Performance of Educational Personnel: Study Report No. 3.
Illinois State Board of Education, Springfield, Dept. of Planning, Research and Evaluation.
This is the third of three technical reports that focus on the hiring and evaluation of educational personnel in Illinois. Practices used by colleges and universities to assess prospective educational personnel at the graduate 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 the 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. Four types of graduate level programs were identified: guidance and counseling, general supervisory, general administrative, and superintendent. Data presented reflect information obtained and analyzed from 61 completed survey instruments (97 percent) representing graduate programs at 20 colleges and universities. The survey questions and results are presented in the same order as they were presented on the questionnaire: (1) admission to graduate college; (2) admission to a specific approved program; (3) graduation and recommendation for certification; and (4) perspective of quality of personnel in the program. Tables which show both the questions asked and the distribution of responses are provided in an appendix. (TE)
