STUDY OF FIRST-YEAR 4-H CLUB LEADERS IN NEW YORK STATE--TENURE, CHARACTERISTICS OF LEADERS AND EVALUATION OF JOB PERFORMANCE BY 4-H AGENTS.
ALEXANDER, FRANK D.
TO DETERMINE THE FACTORS RELATED TO FIRST-YEAR 4-H LEADERS' CONTINUING IN OR DROPPING OUT OF 4-H WORK AND TO ANALYZE RELATIONSHIPS AMONG CHARACTERISTICS OF A SAMPLE OF FIRST-YEAR 4-H LEADERS AND THE EVALUATION BY THEIR 4-H AGENTS OF JOBS PERFORMED AND NOT PERFORMED, IN 1961 QUESTIONNAIRES AND PERSONALITY TESTS WERE GIVEN TO 527 FIRST-YEAR 4-H LEADERS IN NEW YORK WHO WERE PART OF A NORTHEASTERN REGIONAL SAMPLE. QUESTIONNAIRES WERE ALSO ADMINISTERED IN 1961 AND 1962 TO 4-H AGENTS IN THE COUNTIES FROM WHICH THE LEADERS CAME. MAJOR PERSONAL CHARACTERISTICS OF THE SAMPLE ARE OUTLINED AND THEN RELATED TO TENURE. IMPLICATIONS OF THE FINDINGS ARE RELEVANT IN TRAINING AGENTS TO TRAIN LEADERS. IN THE SUPPLEMENT, DISTRIBUTION OF JOBS ACCORDING TO THE NUMBER OF FIRST-YEAR 4-H LEADERS PERFORMING AND NOT PERFORMING THEM, AND THE PERCEPTIONS OF 4-H AGENTS AND STATE LEADERS OF 4-H LEADERS' JOBS ARE PRESENTED IN TABLES. APPENDIXES INCLUDE QUESTIONNAIRES.
