Studies on the Affect of Participation in Training and Supervisory Programs.
Dimock, Hedley G.
This study describes the procedures used to evaluate the effect of 28 leadership development programs for young and middle-aged adults. The educational experiences were divided into 4 groups -- low, medium, high, and very high -- depending on the level of the learners' participation and the extent to which the learning was focused on their interests and experiences. These factors were rated on a subjective basis by the author. From a variety of approaches to predicting successful group leaders, a series of short questions that actually discriminated successful from unsuccessful group leaders were selected. Three attitude questionnaires were put together in a leadership inventory and studies of its reliability ranged from .70 to .90 (odd-even and test-retest). Studies of its validity in eight field situations ranged from .23 to .69 with an average of about .50. These are multiple correlations and were established using the Aitken method with rank order correlations and the Jenkins method with product-moment correlations. The findings revealed that high participation led to a more significant attitude change than low participation. (nl)
