An Analysis of the 1963-64 National Association of Secondary-School Principals' Administrative Internship and its Implication for the Internship in Educational Administration.
McGrew, Jean Byron
The primary purposes of this study were: (1) to establish, through a detailed examination of the professional literature, a set of criteria for those practices considered to be desirable to the operation of an administrative internship; (2) to collect data through a case study of the 1963-64 NASSP administrative internship; and (3) to examine those data in terms of the established criteria. The sources of data included books, articles in professional journals, dissertations, personal interview of interns, written material and evaluations on file in the NASSP offices in Washington D.C., and questionnaires sent to the school officials designated by the interns as the person most responsible for hiring them. Opinion in the professional literature allowed for the development of nine criteria in three broad categories: the relationship of the internship to the university, university supervision of internship, and internship experiences in the cooperating school. The data showed that the criteria were most successfully met in those areas in which the cooperating schools held the major responsibility and least successfully met where the cooperating universities held it. Universities preparing educational administrators have become increasingly interested in the administrative internship but are divided and uncertain about their proper role. (author/nl)
