Teacher Education for Future Generations: A Dynamic Process of Assessment and Evaluation.
Lamson, Sharon L.; And Others
In the spring of 1988, the Dean of the College of Education and Human Services at Central Missouri State University (CMSU) appointed a committee to focus on the assessment of teacher education. Since then the Teacher Education Assessment Committee (TEAC) has funtioned as a dynamic operation collaborating with all colleges on the CMSU campus. This paper reports on the first of year of activity by the TEAC--the goals of the Committee, its actions, and the way it functions. The TEAC is implementing a blueprint for program improvement and increased student learning which focuses on five academic points: (1) pre-admission; (2) mid-point; (3) entry into a major college; (4) post-major; and (5) post-graduation assessment. It is generally understood that the assessment program will include, in addition to academic programs, the university services and residential life, and that there will be surveys of student attitudes. Included in the appendices are some products generated by the TEAC. (JD)
