HAVENS, JAMES E.
A REPRESENTATIVE GROUP OF 124 (10 PERCENT) NEW 4-H LEADERS IN WASHINGTON COMPLETED A PRETEST QUESTIONNAIRE ON MATERIAL IN A SERIES OF SIX PAMPHLETS TO BE USED IN TRAINING SESSIONS. AN IDENTICAL POST-TEST ADMINISTERED BY MAIL 3 MONTHS AFTER THE TRAINING PROGRAM DREW A 60 PERCENT RETURN. THE STUDY DETERMINED (1) SOME CHARACTERISTICS OF NEW 4-H LEADERS ATTENDING TRAINING SESSIONS, (2) THEIR UNDERSTANDING PRIOR TO TRAINING OF AREAS COVERED BY THE GUIDE, (3) UNDERSTANDING AFTER TRAINING, AND (4) EFFECTS OF SEX, AGE, PREVIOUS YOUTH LEADERSHIP EXPERIENCE, 4-H EXPERIENCE, OCCUPATION, RESIDENCE, AND EDUCATION ON THE LEADER'S KNOWLEDGE. NEW 4-H LEADERS SCORING HIGH ON BOTH PRETEST AND POST-TEST HAD HAD PREVIOUS VOLUNTEER YOUTH LEADERSHIP EXPERIENCE, HAD CHILDREN IN 4-H FOR 2 OR MORE YEARS, AND WERE IN PROFESSIONAL OCCUPATIONS. ONLY THOSE WITH SOME COLLEGE INDICATED ADEQUATE KNOWLEDGE 3 MONTHS AFTER TRAINING. THE 4-H LEADERS WITH MOST EXPERIENCE SCORED HIGHEST ON THE PRETEST BUT LOWEST ON THE POST-TEST. ALL GROUPS SHOWED A NEED FOR TRAINING. THIS REPORT WAS BASED ON THE AUTHOR'S SUMMARY OF SPECIAL PROBLEMS REPORT, SUBMITTED FOR MASTER OF EXTENSION DEGREE. (AJ)
