Abstract: 

Since the Iranian Ministry of Education trains its school teachers at its teacher training centers across the country, this study was designed to evaluate the TTCs of Khuzestan comprehensively. In the course of this research, first the four factors of ground, input, process, and output were designated. Then for each factor appropriate criteria were worked out: six criteria being allotted to ground, seven to input, eight to process, and three to output, totally 24 criteria. For each criterion, indices and standards were defined on the basis of which judgment could be made about the condition and merit of each factor and criterion. The method used in this study was descriptive of the survey category. This study had the seven sub-populations of educational experts, principals and their assistants, students, budget personnel, library staff, faculty members, and graduates of five TTCs (three for women and two for men) during the two academic years of 1382-1384 (2003-2005). Data were gathered by means of 10 instruments comprising questionnaires, interviews, checklists and filed documents. Findings showed that these 2- year training institutions have been able to fulfill their set goals appropriately. The status of these centers was evaluated to be relatively appropriate in terms of geographical, socioeconomic and cultural grounds. The input of these centers and also their processes covering structural/organizational make-up, teaching/ learning activities, and services and support resources were found to be relatively acceptable. Finally, the outputs, i.e. its graduates, were rated as highly acceptable.
