A Comparison of Student Achievement Between Two- and Three-Hour Public School Trade and Industrial Education Welding Classes.
Rosin, William John
Student achievement between 2- and 3-hour industrial education welding classes was tested through a welding achievement test developed by the researcher, validated by a panel of jurors, and refined and further improved through a pilot study. A pretest was administered to 392 students and results were used for pairing the students. The standard error of measurement from the pilot study was used for setting the limits for pairing. The post test was administered to 365 welding students in 24 schools and the test results of 153 pairs were treated statistically to test the null hypothesis. It was rejected at the .05 and .0l of significance. The conclusions are: (1) Students enrolled in a 2-hour welding class did at least as well as, if not better than, the students enrolled in a 3-hour welding class, (2) There was no correlation between the instructor's evaluation of a student's welding performance and a student's welding achievement test results, and (3) 2-hour trade and industrial education welding programs appear to be taught by young teachers who have less experience than teachers of 3-hour programs. This D.Ed. thesis was submitted to Texas A and M University. (GR)
