EVALUATION OF A GRADUATE PROFESSIONAL IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM, 1965-1966.
KANUN, CLARA
TO EVALUATE THE GRADUATE PROFESSIONAL IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM, JOINTLY SPONSORED BY THE GENERAL EXTENSION DIVISION AND THE INSTITUTE OF AGRICULTURE OF THE UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA, THE INVESTIGATORS ADMINISTERED A SURVEY QUESTIONNAIRE TO PARTICIPANTS, THEIR EMPLOYERS, AND THE FACULTY. PARTICIPANTS WERE SURVEYED BOTH BEFORE AND AFTER THEIR COURSES, WHICH INCLUDED GRADUATE DEGREE CREDIT COURSES, CERTIFICATE CREDIT COURSES, AND NONCREDIT SEMINARS. THE PARTICIPANTS WERE PROFESSIONAL WORKERS IN THE FIELDS OF AGRICULTURE AND AGRICULTURAL EDUCATION, SUCH AS EXTENSION PERSONNEL, AGRICULTURAL TEACHERS, HOME ECONOMICS TEACHERS, FORESTRY PERSONNEL, AND PROFESSIONAL EMPLOYEES IN AGRIBUSINESS AND INDUSTRY. ALTHOUGH THERE WAS A CONSENSUS THAT THE COURSES FULFILLED THE STUDENTS' EXPECTATIONS AND EDUCATIONAL NEEDS, MORE INVESTIGATION IS NEEDED BEFORE A FINAL DECISION CAN BE MADE ABOUT THE PROGRAM SINCE THE ENROLLMENT WAS CONSIDERED TO BE LIMITED AND UNREPRESENTATIVE.
