Results of a Program Effectiveness Survey Used to Guide Curriculum Revision in a Middle Level Teacher Education Program
Knorr, Ron; Medord, Lienne
Current Issues in Middle Level Education, v18 n1 p8-15 2013
Teacher education programs are under extreme scrutiny as the demands for effectiveness and efficiency increase in the current political and operational environment. Within the framework established by This We Believe (AMLE, 2010) and the Position Statement on the Professional Preparation of Middle Level Teachers (AMLE, 2011), middle level teacher educators need techniques to gauge program effectiveness and to respond to changes needed to insure that attribute. This study utilized a survey tool to measure self-reported teacher effectiveness and program satisfaction and then employed those survey results to make changes to the program. A second phase of the study was undertaken to assess the self-reported effectiveness of and satisfaction with these curricular changes in the professional practice of a subsequent cohort of program completers of a middle grades teacher education program.
