PROCEDURES FOR THE SUPERVISION AND EVALUATION OF NEW PART-TIME EVENING-DIVISION INSTRUCTORS IN CALIFORNIA JUNIOR COLLEGES.
HEINBERG, SYLVESTER
THIS STUDY WAS DESIGNED TO DETERMINE (1) WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE IMPROVEMENT OF THE PART-TIME INSTRUCTIONAL STAFF IN EVENING PROGRAMS, (2) HOW THE STAFF IS AND SHOULD BE SUPERVISED AND EVALUATED, AND (3) HOW TO DEVELOP RECOMMENDED PRACTICES FOR EVALUATION AND IMPROVEMENT. ADMINISTRATORS FROM 63 CALIFORNIA JUNIOR COLLEGES REPORTED CURRENT PRACTICES IN FINDING, SCREENING, AND HIRING SUCH INSTRUCTORS. FOURTEEN OF THE MOST EXPERIENCED ADMINISTRATORS WERE SELECTED AS A SEPARATE VALIDATING GROUP, THE OTHERS AS A SECOND RESPONDENT GROUP. PRACTICES USED BY 70 PERCENT OF THE SELECT GROUP ARE CONSIDERED "RECOMMENDED." PRACTICES IN DEVELOPING TEACHING ASSIGNMENTS AND IN LOCATING, SCREENING, AND HIRING THESE INSTRUCTORS ARE LISTED, AND THE RESPONSES OF BOTH GROUPS ARE GIVEN BY NUMBER AND PERCENTAGE. ORIENTATION PRACTICES FOR NEWLY APPOINTED INSTRUCTORS AND SUPERVISION AND EVALUATION METHODS FOR ALL THE PART-TIME EVENING TEACHERS ARE SIMILARLY REPORTED BY GROUP. A COMBINED LIST OF ALL 47 PRACTICES MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED BY THE SELECT GROUP IS PRESENTED. THE STUDY CONCLUDES WITH A SUMMARY OF THE GENERAL FINDINGS, CONCLUSIONS, AND RECOMMENDATIONS, AND WITH SUGGESTIONS FOR FURTHER RESEARCH. THIS ED.D. DISSERTATION IS AVAILABLE AS DOCUMENT NO. 67-405, FOR $4.00 (MICROFILM) OR $14.20 (XEROGRAPHIC COPY) FROM UNIVERSITY MICROFILMS, INC., P.O. BOX 1346, ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN 48106. (HH)
