A Comparative Analysis of Selected Program Planning Procedures for Adult Educational Activities as Perceived by Adult Educators and Urban Planners in Florida.
Brady, Henry Grady, Jr.
A comparative analysis of the importance of selected program planning procedures and related actions for developing, conducting, and evaluating adult educational activities as perceived by adult educators and urban planners was made. The sample comprised 35 adult educators and 35 urban planners from 21 areas in Florida. An instrument listed, in sequential order, 13 program planning procedures selected from the literature of adult education, and listed randomly five implementing action steps. The following conclusions were made: Major differences existed between the two groups in their perceptions of the importance of (1) the selected program planning procedures in that almost half of the procedures (6 of 13) were rated for each procedure in that more than one-third of the actions (27 of 65) were rated significantly more important by adult educators. A low level of correlations existed between the two groups for a majority of the implementing actions which were rank ordered. (Author/NL)
