Characteristics of Educational Administration Graduates.
Lester, Paula E.; White, Richard K.
An investigation sought to ascertain the characteristics of preservice administrator graduates of the New York State Department of Educational Leadership and Administration (DELA) master's degree and professional diploma programs on the bases of their demographic traits, their career status and expectations, and their perceptions of their program field experiences. The purpose of the study was to develop a profile of the typical intern who underwent supervised administrator program field experiences. Of 1,600 interns who were mailed questionnaires, 715 (44.7 percent) were returned for analysis. The findings support the practice of administrator training programs providing supervised practicums and internships. Survey forms are appended. (JAM)
