Results of a 1982 survey to assess competencies that were developed for special education teachers in Kansas are presented. The 61 competencies covered the role of special education personnel with regular educators and the involvement of parents in the special education process. The objective of the competency-development project was to reduce the high attrition rate of special educators by improving preservice teacher education. Surveys were completed by 443 special education teachers and 57 administrators. The teachers provided three ratings/responses for each competency statement: (1) the importance of each competency to job satisfaction and effective functioning as a special educator; (2) their perception of their own strength in skill as defined in the competency statement; and (3) whether they had received any training in the competency, and the nature of the training. Administrators rated the importance of the competency and the degree to which they perceived teachers to possess each competency. They also indicated whether they thought their staff had received preservice or inservice training related to each competency. Additional information on teacher characteristics, background, and teacher settings was obtained. (SEW)
