EFFECTIVENESS OF THE BUDGETARY ANALYSIS APPROACH OF TEACHING FARM MANAGEMENT TO VOCATIONAL AGRICULTURE STUDENTS IN THE SECONDARY SCHOOLS OF NORTHEASTERN OKLAHOMA.
QUIMBY, MILFORD E.
JUNIOR AND SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL VOCATIONAL AGRICULTURE STUDENTS IN 32 RANDOMLY SELECTED SCHOOLS WERE ASSIGNED TO EXPERIMENTAL AND CONTROL CATEGORIES TO TEST WHETHER THE BUDGETARY ANALYSIS APPROACH OF TEACHING FARM MANAGEMENT WAS MORE EFFECTIVE THAN THE TRADITIONAL APPROACH. THE CONTROL GROUP WAS TAUGHT BY THE "WITHIN-ENTERPRISE" TECHNIQUE IN WHICH THE STUDENT STUDIED FARM MANAGEMENT SOLELY AS IT APPLIED TO EACH SPECIFIC ENTERPRISE, WHILE THE EXPERIMENTAL GROUP WAS TAUGHT BY THE BUDGETARY ANALYSIS APPROACH. MEAN GAIN SCORES FOR STUDENTS IN THE EXPERIMENTAL GROUP WERE SIGNIFICANTLY GREATER, SUBSTANTIATING THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE BUDGETARY ANALYSIS APPROACH. THE THEORY OF INCREASED MOTIVATION THROUGH CONTEST PARTICIPATION OR THE AMOUNT OF MONEY INVESTED IN SUPERVISED FARMING PROGRAMS WERE NOT SUBSTANTIATED. NEITHER WAS SIGNIFICANTLY RELATED TO ACHIEVEMENT IN FARM MANAGEMENT TRAINING. RESULTS INDICATED THAT STUDENTS TAUGHT BY THE BUDGETARY ANALYSIS APPROACH WHO PARTICIPATE IN THE FARM MANAGEMENT CONTEST WILL LIKELY HAVE MORE INVESTED IN THEIR TOTAL SUPERVISED FARM TRAINING PROGRAM.
