NCATE Influences on Modeling Preparation Programs.
Peseau, Bruce A.
The evaluation criteria from the 1987 National Council for Accrediation of Teacher Education (NCATE) accreditation standards were used as the basis for the design of professional preparation programs. A series of models are shown, which progress from an overview model to eight more specific sub-models. The design is intended to be generic and can be applied to any professional specialization, although administrator preparation is used in the context of the design. Three sub-models show the components of the design of curriculum. Other sub-models include: (1) assessment (of students, learning, and program); (2) clinical experiences; (3) research training and experiences; (4) placement of graduates and follow-up development throughout their careers; and (5) differentiated faculty roles. The design incorporates a research component throughout all of the implementation phases. These models are intended as only the first stage of preparation program redesign. Each sub-model must be further developed into its more specific products. Finally, the course syllabi must be rewritten to reflect the design. (Author)
