An Analysis of the Teaching Plan of the Adult Educator and Its Relationship to Teaching Effectiveness.
Evans, Virginia M.
An Analysis of the teaching plans of adult educators in the Ohio Cooperative Extension Service and an examination of the relationship between the quality of the teaching plan for one lesson, the effectiveness of teaching performance as rated by supervisors, and personal experience factors of the educator were conducted. A 40% random sample was drawn for the study, and teaching plans were received for 96% of this sample. These were evaluated by an independent jury of adult educators. Each Extension Agent completed a personal experience questionnaire and a self-evaluation of his own teaching plan. Supervisors rated teaching performance by paired comparison of agents. The mean score of the total teaching plans evaluated by the independent jury was 2.44 on a scale ranging from 0-5. Mean scores for teaching plans were highest for home economics agents and lowest for agricultural agents. In addition, supervisors rated differently the teaching performance of county and area agents. Also, significant positive correlations existed between the self-evaluation and the independent jury evaluations of the teaching plans. (CK)
