South Carolina State Dept. of Education, Columbia.
This document provides an outline of specific standards for teacher education programs in South Carolina. Outcome indicators that measure the effectiveness of both the general and the specific components of the basic programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels are: (1) the proportion of students attaining the passing score on the professional knowledge examination; (2) the proportion of students attaining the passing score on the specialty area examinations; (3) the proportion of students who achieve the state standard on the performance assessment instrument during the provisional contract year; and (4) the proportion of students qualified for certification in South Carolina. For advanced programs, the indicator is the proportion of students attaining the passing score on the specialty area examinations. The on-site evaluation of an institution's teacher education program is based on 12 process indicators. These indicators are listed and a list is also provided of specific standards for basic programs in 23 teaching majors. Curriculum principles and patterns for advanced programs are set forth as well as standards for innovative and experimental programs. (JD)
