AN ANALYSIS OF THE OPINIONS OF INSTRUCTORS AND SUPERVISORY PERSONNEL REGARDING CERTAIN INSTRUCTIONAL PROBLEMS IN COMMUNITY COLLEGES IN THE STATE OF WASHINGTON.
LOUK, EARNEST LAVELLE
THIS ANALYSIS OF THE OPINIONS OF ADMINISTRATORS AND TEACHERS ON THE SERIOUSNESS OF VARIOUS INSTRUCTIONAL PROBLEMS IS INTENDED TO PROVIDE GUIDES FOR IN-SERVICE TRAINING. THE STUDY EXAMINES WHICH PROBLEMS THE TEACHERS CONSIDER MOST IMPORTANT AND WHETHER THE ADMINISTRATORS AGREE. A RATING SCALE FOR SIX PROBLEM AREAS WAS CONSTRUCTED--(1) INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS, (2) STUDENT RELATIONS, (3) COURSE CONTENT, (4) ADMINISTRATOR RELATIONS, (5) TEACHING METHODS, AND (6) RELATIONS WITH OTHER TEACHERS. TEACHERS AND ADMINISTRATORS WERE GROUPED BY POSITION, EDUCATION, EXPERIENCE, AGE, AND SEX. ALL GROUPS AGREED ON THE IMPORTANCE OF SUITABLE OFFICE SPACE, MOTIVATION OF STUDENTS, KNOWLEDGE OF TRANSFER REQUIREMENTS, TEACHERS' PERSONAL STUDIES, INDIVIDUAL INSTRUCTION, SOUND TESTING, AND SHARING OF ROOMS AND EQUIPMENT. STAFF AND ADMINISTRATORS GENERALLY AGREED ON STUDENT RELATIONS, INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS, COURSE CONTENT, AND TEACHING METHODS. AGREEMENT WAS LOWEST ON PROBLEMS ON RELATIONS WITH OTHER TEACHERS AND ADMINISTRATORS, AND HIGEST ON TEACHING METHODS. DESPITE CLOSE AGREEMENT ON CERTAIN INSTRUCTIONAL PROBLEMS, TEACHERS AND ADMINISTRATORS MUST COOPERATE MORE IN PLANNING IN-SERVICE TRAINING. THIS ED.D. DISSERTATION IS AVAILABLE AS DOCUMENT NO. 66-13,568, FOR $3.60 (MICROFILM) OR $12.60 (XEROGRAPHIC COPY) FROM UNIVERSITY MICROFILMS, INC., 313 NORTH FIRST STREET, ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN 48107. (HH)
