New York Collaborative for Excellence in Teacher Preparation: Years One and Two. Formative Evaluation Report.
Pape, Stephen J.; Tittle, Carol Kehr; Flugman, Bert
This paper presents a formative evaluation report, representing the accumulation of evaluation reports and materials from the first year of the New York Collaborative for Excellence in Teacher Preparation (NYCETP) cooperative workshop efforts. The goal of the collaborative is to produce well-qualified teachers of science and mathematics for New York City schools and to increase the number of individuals who enter and successfully complete teacher preparation requirements in science and mathematics. The year 1 report (October 1996) has three sections that include an overall summary, a summary of goals attained, and suggestions for future efforts of NYCETP members. The summary sections reflect participant observations by two evaluators and workshop participant feedback from four faculty workshops and two larger conferences held by cooperating institutions. The year 2 report (March 1997) focuses on the two areas of evaluation activities in progress: (1) formative, ongoing evaluation information to assist in project monitoring and provide technical assistance and (2) summative project documentation and impact indicators. Two appendixes present NYCETP categories of activities on individual campuses cross-referenced with applicable contact groups and an NYCETP case study outline. (SM)
