A Comparative Analysis of the Student/Subject Orientation of ABE Teachers in West Virginia.
Prey, Phillip O.
A study was conducted to (1) establish the subject or student orientation of adult basic education (ABE) teachers and non-ABE teachers in West Virginia and (2) identify the degree to which certain biographical and educational characteristics may be related to their orientation. Data for the study were based on responses of forty-one ABE instructors and ninety-eight non-ABE instructors who were given the Professional Activity Inventory for College Teachers. Findings of the study indicated that the group of ABE teachers are no more student-oriented than the group of non-ABE teachers. Single non-ABE teachers were found to be significantly more student-oriented than single ABE teachers. (Summary data tables are appended.) (LRA)
