Beyond Standardized Testing: Examining, Developing, and Validating the Interview for Admission into the Teacher Education Program.
Harrison, Judy A.; McAfee, Harold
To improve the admission process for teacher education at Henderson State University, Arkansas, and to ensure that teacher education candidates have appropriate dispositions for teaching, this study investigated the interview was an admissions criterion. Criteria for assessment and levels of proficiency were determined. A scoring rubric was developed and validated, and a training video depicting "unsatisfactory,""basic," and "proficient" candidate responses during an interview was produced. Rater reliability was examined in the rating of 130 candidates, and a basis for further research was established to continue to develop the interview process. Seven appendixes contain the scoring rubric, evaluation comments about the interview training, interview rating sheets, and a candidate result summary. (Author/SLD)
