Summary

The concept "performance-based teacher education" connotes a program designed specifically to provide the prospective teacher with learning experiences that will prepare him to assume a specified teaching role. Successful completion of the program is accomplished only when the teacher candidate provides evidence that he possesses specified requisite knowledge and can carry out in practice specified teaching functions. Most of the programs studied thus far are designed so that the professional studies component is the part that is performance-based. This component is a collection of units including behavioral objectives, independent study, and periodic assessment and feedback. Some programs, however, focus on the performance of pupils. In this case, the objectives for pupil learning must be translated into appropriate teaching competencies before a teacher preparation program can be designed. Some of the promising practices currently receiving new or renewed emphasis on performance-based programs are sharper focus on objectives, attention to individual differences, integration of theory and practice, and change in the role of the teacher. Although there are numerous problems in the design and evaluation of performance-based programs, it is hoped that this new approach will provide one means of bringing about needed reforms in public education.
