An Analysis of the Extension Worker's Knowledge of Extension Programs.
Stonecipher, Charles Leroy
Forty-four employees of the General Extension Division of the Nebraska Agricultural Extension Service and 119 Agricultural Extension employees of the University of Nebraska comprised the population of this study comparing personnel's knowledge of Agricultural Extension and General Extension programs and differences in knowledge of programs according to job position and tenure. Subject content, methods and techniques, sources of finance, service activities provided, and clientele were specific aspects considered. Data were gathered from Extension records, interviews with administrators, and through questionnaires mailed to personnel. Frequency counts and percentages present workers' responses. Some general findings were that personnel were more knowledgeable about their own programs than those of the other extension organization, personnel of neither organization knew the relative emphasis given to specific areas or greatest source of funds, personnel viewed the programs and clientele of the two organizations as similar, and knowledge of extension programs and tenure were related among General Extension administrators.
