An Evaluation of the Preparation of the Industrial Arts Teacher Education Graduates at Colorado State University, 1957 through 1967.
Hein, Edward C.
A questionnaire sent to 128 former industrial arts majors of Colorado State University was constructed to gather information about graduates for more effective counseling of future students and opinions concerning (1) proposed changes in the curriculum offerings for nonteaching or technical education programs, and (2) the effectiveness of their past programs. The conclusions were: (1) Industrial arts majors are typical of all other entering students, (2) Nearly one-half of all the entering students are transfer students, (3) Approximately one-third of the graduates were not teaching or had dropped out of teaching, (4) Salaries of those employed by industry are generally no higher than teacher salaries, (5) Almost one-half of the 99 (77.34 percent) who responded to the questionnaire had obtained a second higher degree, (6) Fewer graduates in this study were required to teach courses outside their major than were indicated in previous studies, (7) Sponsoring extracurricular activities and shop maintenance appeared unchanged from previous studies, and (8) Woodworking and drawing remain the two most popular courses taken in college. This Ed.D. thesis was submitted to Colorado State College. (GR)
