The New Teacher Education Program at the University of Wyoming. Final Evaluation Report.
Moore, Alan D.; And Others
A new teacher education program implemented at the University of Wyoming in the Fall of 1992, made radical changes in the preexisting program. To take the place of student teaching, the program involves students in field experiences in schools participating as Wyoming Centers for Teaching and Learning. In the Fall of 1993 an in-house formative evaluation of the program was conducted to: (1) examine feedback about how the program was developing as it proceeded from initial implementation toward full implementation over the first few years; (2) provide stakeholders with the opportunity to express their ideas and concerns about the new program; and (3) to build an evaluation component into the teacher education program. The CIPP model was used for a formative evaluation; primary emphases were placed on the input and process parts of the model. Evaluation questions were developed based on individual interviews, focus group interviews, questionnaires, and program documents collected from stakeholders. The report is organized as follows: an evaluation summary; evaluation questions; summary of results; and a summary of questionnaire results. The main body of the document provides detailed survey results on 11 topics which are presented for the College of Education faculty, education students, mentor teachers, and clinical faculty for the Fall 1993 and Spring 1994 semesters.
