Counter-Intuitive Findings from Teacher Education Accreditation Council’s Surveys of Candidates and Faculty about Candidate Knowledge and Skill
This article describes the results from surveys conducted by the Teacher Education Accreditation Council regarding the knowledge and skills of graduates from teacher education programs. The students, faculty, and cooperating teachers in a large national sample of accredited teacher education programs rated the graduates of the programs in the ‘more than adequate’ to ‘excellent’ range with regard to the graduates’ knowledge of subject matter, pedagogy, multicultural understanding, instructional technology, the graduates’ skill to teach caringly and effectively and their capacity to develop professionally in their careers. Marginally lower ratings were given for the institution’s commitment to the program, the program’s facilities and resources, and the student support services. These results also occur in varyingly high degrees within each of the 50 programs in the sample.
