PRIDE OF PERFORMANCE SURVEY. FINAL REPORT.
Utah Research Coordinating Unit for Vocational and Technical Education, Salt Lake City.
OF 1,100 QUESTIONNAIRES SUBMITTED TO RANDOMLY SELECTED VOCATIONAL AGRICULTURE STUDENTS, 394 OR 36 PERCENT WERE RETURNED TO PROVIDE INFORMATION FOR EVALUATING THE EFFECTIVENESS OF AN EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION PROGRAM, "PRIDE OF PERFORMANCE," DESIGNED TO ENHANCE THE IMAGE OF VOCATIONAL EDUCATION AND TO EVOKE GREATER STUDENT PARTICIPATION IN VOCATIONAL EDUCATION PROGRAMS. IT WAS PREDICATED THAT THE MOST FAVORABLE RESULTS WOULD BE FOUND AMONG THE SELECT GROUP OF VOCATIONAL EDUCATION STUDENTS AND THEIR PARENTS. HENCE, IF RESULTS WERE NOT FAVORABLE, THEN OTHER GROUPS WOULD YIELD EVEN MORE NEGATIVE RESULTS. SOME FINDINGS WERE--(1) OF 304 RESPONDENTS, 79 PERCENT HAD NEVER VIEWED THE TELEVISION PROGRAM, (2) OF 258 RESPONDENTS, 41 PERCENT DID NOT RECEIVE THE PROGRAM ON THEIR TELEVISION SET, (3) OF 233 RESPONDENTS, 14 (6 PERCENT) REPORTED THAT THE PROGRAM CAUSED THEM TO PLAN TO TAKE MORE VOCATIONAL COURSES, AND (4) OF 237 RESPONDENTS, 31 (13 PERCENT) SAID THEIR OPINION OF VOCATIONAL OCCUPATIONS IMPROVED AS A RESULT OF SEEING THE PROGRAM. IT WAS RECOMMENDED THAT VOCATIONAL DIRECTORS AND VOCATIONAL TEACHERS BE CALLED UPON TO INTEGRATE THE PROGRAM INTO THE OVERALL CURRICULUM, A WIDE TELEVISION RECEPTION CAPABILITY BE SOUGHT, THE TELEVISION PROGRAM'S FORMAT BE ALTERED TO MAKE IT MORE PALATABLE AND INSTRUCTIONAL, AND IF RECOMMENDATIONS COULD NOT BE CARRIED OUT, THE PROGRAM BE DISCONTINUED. THE PROGRAM WAS DISCONTINUED, AND A REPLACEMENT WAS TO BE CONSIDERED. (SL)
