SERRANO, José Manuel; MORENO OLIVOS, Tiburcio; PONS PARRA, Rosa María e LARA VILLANUEVA, Rosamary Selene. Assessment of Teacher Training Programs in Cooperative Learning Methods, Based on Analysis of Structural Equations. REDIE [online]. 2008, vol.10, n.2, pp. 1-30. ISSN 1607-4041.
The present study is focused on the design of the assessment of programs for teacher training. The authors emphasize the relevance of the assessment of this kind of programs and its development by models of structural equations. There are specifically postulated four exogenous variables, which coincide with four segments of a program, and an endogenous variable, which refers to the results, expressed these in terms of adequacy, productivity, efficacy, efficiency, and effectiveness. Both the structural and the measurement aspects are totally developed in the corresponding causal model.
