FACTORS CONTRIBUTING TO STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT.
Ohio State Dept. of Education, Columbus. Trade and Industrial Education Service.
FACTORS WHICH MIGHT CONTRIBUTE SIGNIFICANTLY TOWARD STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT IN SELECTED TRADE AND INDUSTRIAL EDUCATION AREAS WERE EXAMINED -- WHAT IS THE BACKGROUND AND PREPARATION OF OHIO'S TEACHER IN TRADE AND INDUSTRIAL EDUCATION, IS THERE ANY RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE AMOUNT OF MONEY SPENT PER STUDENT AND QUALITY PROGRAMS, DO LOCAL SUPERVISORS' RATINGS DESCRIBE QUALITY PROGRAMS, WHAT ARE THE BEHAVIOR CHARACTERISTICS OF TRADE AND INDUSTRIAL EDUCATION TEACHERS, WHAT DIFFERENCES EXIST BETWEEN SPECIFIC AREAS OF THE MANY TRADE AND INDUSTRIAL PROGRAMS, AND WHAT FACTORS APPEAR TO BE SIGNIFICANT IN THE QUALITY PROGRAMS. FOUR INSTRUMENTS WERE USED TO ANSWER THESE QUESTIONS. ALL LOCAL SUPERVISORS OR PRINCIPALS OF STATE-APPROVED TRADE AND INDUSTRIAL EDUCATION PROGRAMS IN OHIO WERE SENT A PACKET OF MATERIALS WHICH INCLUDED AN EXPENDITURE ANALYSIS SHEET, TEACHER RATING SHEETS, TEACHER BACKGROUND AND PREPARATION SHEETS, AND THE OPINION, ATTITUDE, AND INTEREST SURVEY FOR EACH TRADE AND INDUSTRIAL EDUCATION TEACHER. RESPONSES WERE RECEIVED FROM 93 PERCENT OF THE SCHOOLS. SOME CONCLUSIONS WERE -- (1) THE EXPENDITURE PER STUDENT IN OHIO'S TRADE AND INDUSTRIAL PROGRAMS WAS A SIGNIFICANT CONTRIBUTOR TO STUDENT SUCCESS, (2) TEACHERS OF THE HIGH-ACHIEVING GROUPS DISPLAYED A HIGHER INTELLECTUAL CONCEPT THAN DID TEACHERS OF THE LOW-ACHIEVING GROUP, (3) TEACHERS' INDUSTRIAL EXPERIENCE IS A SIGNIFICANT POSITIVE FACTOR IN RELATION TO STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT, AND (4) TRADE AND INDUSTRIAL EDUCATION TEACHERS ARE CONSIDERABLY MORE MOTIVATED THAN THE NORMAL POPULATION. IT WAS RECOMMENDED THAT THE IN-DEPTH TRADE AREA EXPERIENCE FOR FUTURE TEACHERS SHOULD BE INCREASED AND THE TRADE AND INDUSTRIAL EDUCATION ACHIEVEMENT TESTS SHOULD BE EXPANDED.
