Inventory and Analysis of Professional Tasks Engaged in by Teachers of Vocational Agriculture in the Secondary Schools of New Mexico. A Summary Report of Research.
Hudson, William E.
A study was conducted to develop job descriptions based on an analysis of time spent on tasks and duties performed by vocational agriculture teachers within the public secondary schools in New Mexico. Fifty vocational agriculture teachers who had taught vocational agriculture for at least one year and who were teaching during the 1976-77 school year returned task inventories sent out. The findings showed that, although differences in relative time spent on the 110 tasks did appear, the differences were not large enough to constitute different job types for those teachers involved. However, it was found that the relative time spent on tasks differentiated those teachers who were identified as superior among all others at the duty level. All 110 tasks inventoried were performed by at least one New Mexico vocational agriculture teacher. (LRA)
