Compendium of Items for Follow-Up Surveys of Teacher Education Programs. Technical Series 88-1.
Freeman, Donald J.
A substantial proportion of teacher education institutions administer follow-up surveys to their graduates at some time or other, and many institutions repeat these surveys at regular intervals. Despite the prevalence of such surveys, most institutions develop and administer their own questionnaires without benefit of the experiences of others. The compendium of survey questions presented here is intended to rectify at least part of this problem. The items included in this compendium were culled from a number of existing follow-up survey questionnaires and are organized around the topics most frequently asked about in such questionnaires. For those situations in which analagous questions were asked by numerous institutions, this compendium provides the best formulations of these commonly asked questions. Included in the compendium are items asking about demographic information, employment history, job satisfaction, current teaching context, perceived quality of teacher education programs, professional knowledge, teaching skills and dispositions, and teachers' views about continuing their professional growth.
