REVIEW AND SYNTHESIS OF RESEARCH IN AGRICULTURAL EDUCATION.
PHIPPS, LLOYD J.; WARMBROD, J. ROBERT
OVER 400 STUDIES WERE CONSIDERED IN PREPARING THIS REPORT ON AGRICULTURAL EDUCATION RESEARCH CONCLUSIONS, TRENDS, METHODOLOGY, AND NEEDS. THOUGH EMERGENCE OF CORRELATIONAL AND EXPERIMENTAL RESEARCH IS EVIDENT, RESEARCH IN AGRICULTURAL EDUCATION HAS BEEN LARGELY DESCRIPTIVE. WEAKNESSES IN PROBABILITY SAMPLING AND SURVEY TECHNIQUES HAVE BEEN EVIDENT, ESPECIALLY RELATIVE TO NONRESPONSE. IMPLEMENTATION OF FINDINGS REMAINS A MAJOR PROBLEM, THOUGH PILOT PROGRAMS, POPULARIZED REPORTS, AND COORDINATED APPROACHES HOLD PROMISE OF ALLEVIATING THE PROBLEM. INDIVIDUAL GRADUATE RESEARCH STUDIES HAVE BEEN MOST PREVALENT, AND THESE HAVE BEEN LIMITED BY SHORT DURATION AND HAVE LACKED CUMULATIVE EFFECTS AND CHANCES OF IMPLEMENTATION. COORDINATED STUDIES HAVE BEEN CONDUCTED ON EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES AND NEEDED COMPETENCIES. THE CURRENT RESEARCH REFLECTS NEW DEVELOPMENTS AND INTEREST IN CURRICULUM, POST-HIGH SCHOOL TECHNICAL EDUCATION, SUPERVISED EXPERIENCE, INNOVATIONS, EVALUATION, AND PERSONNEL ROLES. CONCLUSIONS AND FURTHER NEEDS WERE IDENTIFIED IN THESE AND SEVERAL OTHER AREAS INCLUDING (1) INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS, (2) TEACHING AND LEARNING, (3) STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS, (4) GENERAL AGRICULTURE, (5) PERSONNEL PREPARATION, (6) ADMINISTRATION AND SUPERVISION, AND (7) RESEARCH DESIGN.
