MOTIVATIONAL AND PERSONALITY FACTORS IN THE SELECTION OF ELEMENTARY AND SECONDARY SCHOOL TEACHING AS A CAREER.
DIPBOYE, WILBERT J.; KUHLEN, RAYMOND G.
THE SUBJECT OF CONSIDERATION WAS TO STUDY THE REASONS WHY YOUNG PEOPLE CHOOSE THE TEACHING PROFESSION IN CONTRAST TO OTHER VOCATIONS INVOLVING COMPARABLE TRAINING. APPROXIMATELY 1,200 UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS AT SYRACUSE UNIVERSITY PROVIDED INFORMATION FOR THIS PROJECT. COMPARISONS WERE MADE OF--(1) WOMEN STUDENTS SELECTING ELEMENTARY AND SECONDARY TEACHING AND WOMEN MAKING OTHER VOCATIONAL CHOICES, (2) MEN STUDENTS SELECTING SECONDARY TEACHING AND MEN MAKING OTHER CHOICES, AND (3) MEN AND WOMEN SELECTING TEACHING. DATA WERE GATHERED THROUGH PERSONALITY MEASURES, VOCATIONAL INTEREST INVENTORIES, TESTS DESIGNED TO MEASURE PSYCHOLOGICAL NEEDS, QUESTIONNAIRES DEALING WITH EXPECTATION AND CONCEPTS OF TEACHING AS A PROFESSION, AND INTERVIEWS. FURTHER RESEARCH ON HOW TEACHERS AND TEACHING ARE SEEN BY VARIOUS OTHER GROUPS IN THE POPULATION WOULD BE HELPFUL. (AH)
