Teacher Evaluation in Early Childhood Education: Application of a Model

  • Jerry B. Ayers

Abstract

The problem of evaluating graduates of teacher education programs has been a concern of institutions of higher education for a number of years. The need for institutions of higher education to evaluate their teacher education programs was emphasized in the standards adopted in 1970 and 1977 by the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (Standards, 1970 & 1977). Standard 6.1 states “The institution... engages in systematic efforts to evaluate the quality of its graduates upon completion of their program of study and after they enter the teaching profession. This evaluation includes evidence of their performance in relation to program objectives.” (p. 11) Standard 6.2 emphasized the use of evaluation results in program improvement and states “The institution regularly evaluates its teacher education programs and uses the results of its evaluation in the modification and improvement of those programs.” (p. 11)
