In this study, elementary teacher education program was evaluated in terms of attitude, value, and academic motivation towards the teaching profession using Hammond’s evaluation model. Convergent parallel design of mixed method studies was employed. The qualitative component of the study included a total of 39 participants; 23 teacher candidates, 11 faculty members and five executive faculty members while the quantitative component of the study was carried out with 121 teacher candidates. The data were collected through “Academic Motivation Scale”, “Portrait Values Questionnaire”, “Teaching Profession Attitude Scale”, “document analysis, semi-structured interview forms, field notes, and observation forms. The results of the study indicated that although teacher candidates had high levels of attitude and motivation towards the profession, their attitude towards the course, thus motivation to attend classes, was low.  Curriculum objectives for the affective domain were limited to a minimum, content was dense, and the faculty members mostly used expository teaching strategies such as traditional lecture method and question-answer technique.
