A Study in Determining the Role Performance of the Media Generalist as Perceived by Public School Administrators and Teachers.
Di Giammarino, Frank P.
In order to study the role performance of a media generalist working in public schools at the district level, a population of teachers and administrators in two upper middle-class suburban communities was studied. A secondary objective was to utilize the study as a pilot scheme to test the feasibility of applying operational simulation techniques, similar to the in-basket operations utilized in educational administration, as a method of examining media program needs at the local level. A packet of data gathering materials was developed and field tested. It was then administered to the target population. The data was analyzed by computer and the results transcribed into a literary format. The implications of the study are discussed. Appendices include samples of the data-gathering materials, the data analysis materials, background information about the study population, and a bibliography. (JY)
