JUERGENSON, E.M.
STUDENTS IN THE DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURAL EDUCATION AT THE UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA AT DAVIS WHO DO NOT HAVE THE 2.5 GRADE POINT AVERAGE REQUIRED FOR ADMISSION TO THE GRADUATE SCHOOL ENTER AS LIMITED STATUS STUDENTS, PROVIDED THERE IS ADDITIONAL EVIDENCE OF TEACHER POTENTIAL, AS DETERMINED BY A JURY WHICH SUBJECTIVELY EVALUATES THE CANDIDATE'S FUTURE PERFORMANCE. THIS STUDY ATTEMPTS TO ASSESS ON-THE-JOB TEACHER PERFORMANCE OF 21 LIMITED STATUS STUDENTS AND 49 REGULAR GRADUATE STUDENTS BY USE OF A THEORETICAL SALARY SCALE, IN WHICH THE ADMINISTRATOR AND THE REGIONAL SUPERVISOR WERE ASKED TO INDICATE WHAT SALARY SHOULD BE PAID EACH TEACHER IN TERMS OF HIS PRESENT EFFECTIVENESS. THE FINDINGS INDICATED--(1) BOTH GROUPS PERFORMED EQUALLY WELL WHEN TEACHING, (2) FOR THE LIMITED STATUS STUDENTS, THERE WAS NO RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN PERFORMANCE AS TEACHERS AND THEIR UNDERGRADUATE GRADE POINT AVERAGE, (3) FOR THE REGULAR GRADUATE STUDENTS, A SIGNIFICANT RELATIONSHIP EXISTED BETWEEN PERFORMANCE AS TEACHERS AND GRADES, AND (4) THERE WAS A SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCE IN ALL GRADES RECEIVED BY THE TWO GROUPS AT THE POST GRADUATE LEVEL, WITH THE LIMITED STATUS STUDENTS LAGGING BEHIND.
