Summary:
The purpose of the study was to develop and apply an instrumented procedure for deciding the relative importance of a tentative set of professional competencies proposed for middle school teachers of English, using the judgmental ratings by individuals in the general school community as the decision-making base. The results of this rating procedure were intended to demonstrate one way in which the broader educational community could be involved in expressing choices and in setting priorities for programs of competency-based teacher education. A selected group of 50 senior high school students, 50 teachers of middle school English, 50 educational leaders, and 50 patrons of middle schools in the south central administrative area of the Broward County, Florida, public school system were asked to rate a set of 12 general competencies and 60 subcompetencies according to their perceived importance for training and/or certificating teachers of English who work with middle school pupils of ages 10 through 14. The subjects used a forced-choice rank order rating system that resulted in a rank value for each of the general competencies and subcompetencies in the study. Strategies, administrative steps, and public relations materials for reaching each of the targeted groups were incorporated in the details of the procedure. The procedure developed by the study proved feasible and useful for determining the relative order of importance assigned to the proposed teacher competencies for middle school English by the vested interest groups who served as raters. Applications of the procedure are recommended for use by collaborative bodies which seek systematic ways to broaden the base of public involvement in decision-making for teacher education. viii
