The Administrative Functions of the County Extension Director in Kansas.
VanMeter, Earl Leroy
The purpose of this study was to clarify the administrative functions of the Kansas county extension director through the process of role analysis. Respondents included four groups: all Kansas county extension directors, professional co-workers, county agricultural extension council executive board members in the selected counties, and selected state extension administrators. Data were gathered through a questionnaire, personally administered. The respondents were asked to indicate how important they perceived the different selected administrative duties to be by scoring them on a five point scale, five being the most important and one the least important. The methods used in analysis were: mean weighted score, rank order coefficient of correlation, and coefficient of concordance. The study showed that there was more agreement among the respondents as to the rank order of importance of administrative functions of the county extension director than was anticipated. The age variable showed more relationship to the ranking of importance than did any other variable. Sex was the next most important variable studied. (The appendix contains tables, questionnaire, letters, and a bibliography). (author/nl)
