Volunteer Study Groups; Characteristics and Educational Functions; Home Demonstration Units in Onondaga County. Extension Study No. 18.
Alexander, Frank D.
The study aimed at describing the characteristics of a sample of home demonstration units in Onondaga County; testing the effectiveness of the teaching of a selected project; relating characteristics of the units to the learning of the participants; comparing characteristics of project leaders, trained teachers, and members of the unit; and indicating the leaders' preparation for teaching the project. Information was collected through interviews, pre- and posttests, and lesson reports from project leaders. Covariance of analysis was used to correlate learning and characteristics of the units as derived from personal characteristics of members, and only one of nine categories was significant at the .05 level. (Included in the appendixes are the interview schedule for unit members, floor facts test with correct answers indicated, leader's report form, tables presenting data on unit members irrespective of unit connections, and tables presenting detailed data on relationships of unit characteristics to learning of members participating in the floor facts project).
