AN ANALYSIS OF GRADUATE WORK IN INSTITUTIONS WITH PROGRAMS FOR INDUSTRIAL ARTS EDUCATION PERSONNEL.
GINTHER, R.E.; MILLER, W.R.
THE PURPOSES OF THIS STUDY WERE TO EXAMINE (1) THE STATUS OF CERTAIN ORGANIZATIONAL PROCEDURES AND PRACTICES IN GRADUATE PROGRAMS OF INDUSTRIAL ARTS EDUCATION, (2) THE EXTENT TO WHICH SPECIALIZED TECHNICAL, RESEARCH, TEACHING, AND ADMINISTRATION COMPETENCIES ARE DEVELOPED AMONG GRADUATE STUDENTS, AND (3) THE PROVISION FOR GENERAL LIBERAL EDUCATION COURSES IN GRADUATE INDUSTRIAL EDUCATION. QUESTIONNAIRES RETURNED BY REPRESENTATIVES OF 87 INSTITUTIONS IN 36 STATES SHOWED THAT ALL OFFERED THE MASTER'S DEGREE, AND 17 THE DOCTOR'S DEGREE, AND 16 THE SPECIALIST'S DEGREE. INDUSTRIAL ARTS WAS REPRESENTED IN 21 PROGRAMS, VOCATIONAL-INDUSTRIAL EDUCATION IN 18 PROGRAMS, AND TECHNICAL EDUCATION IN 14 PROGRAMS. SOME CONCLUSIONS WERE (1) IT IS QUESTIONABLE WHETHER THE LESS THAN 12 PERCENT TECHNICAL CONTENT OF THE DOCTORAL PROGRAM AND THE 25 PERCENT OF THE MASTER'S PROGRAM IS ADEQUATE TO DEVELOP TECHNICAL COMPETENCIES, (2) THE PRIMARY OPPORTUNITIES FOR DEVELOPING RESEARCH COMPETENCIES AT THE MASTER'S LEVEL ARE COURSES SUCH AS STATISTICS, RESEARCH METHODS, AND PROBLEMS, (3) OPPORTUNITIES FOR DEVELOPING TEACHING AND ADMINISTRATIVE COMPETENCIES APPEAR TO BE PRESENT IN THE PROFESSIONAL COURSES AND THE REQUIRED TEACHING EXPERIENCE, AND (4) MOST INSTITUTIONS RECOMMEND THAT GRADUATE STUDENTS TAKE GENERAL AND LIBERAL EDUCATION COURSES, AND THEY OFFER A VARIETY OF SUCH COURSES.
