Intake Assessments for Alternative Teacher Education: Moving from Legitimation towards Predictive Validity
Ackley, Blaine C.; Fallon, Moira A.; Brouwer, Niels
Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, v32 n6 p657-665 Dec 2007
There is little empirical evidence concerning the predictive validity of indicators used in intake assessments for alternative teacher education programs. However, pinpointing potentially successful candidates requires predictors of teacher competence, which may be used to assess candidates' dispositions, knowledge and skills. Available evidence regarding six possible predictors of teacher competence is examined and their limitations and possibilities are pointed out. Recommendations and methodological guidelines are given for developing and using these indicators in valid and reliable ways. Directions are explored for instrument development and assessment practice. (Contains 1 note.)
