A Comparison of Performance Effectiveness and Portfolio Assessment for Graduate-Level Teacher Candidates
Masci, Frank J.
Teacher Education and Practice, v19 n3 p321-337 Sum 2006
This study examines the relationship between supervisor evaluation of classroom performance and exit portfolio ratings of candidates enrolled in the Professional Immersion Master of Arts in Teaching Program, a partnership between Johns Hopkins University and Montgomery County (Maryland) Public Schools. This graduate-level teacher preparation program provides candidates with more than a year of internship experience, a high degree of supervisory support, and significant financial assistance. The school district provides tuition assistance in return for a 3-year commitment by candidates to teach in the district. All candidates are evaluated several times during their internships by a university supervisor and must create and present a portfolio, which is scored by an independent panel of educators.
