Industrial Arts Curriculum Implications from Student Evaluations of Industrial Arts Experiences.
Hilton, Ross Cropper
The study sought to determine the industrial arts experiences relating to information about industry, industrial processes, materials, skills and procedures that students indicate are important for them to have during their school experience. A list of 157 student experiences were rated on a five point rating scale by 234 College High students, grades 7 through 12, for their perceptions of the relative importance of these experiences, the grade level for instruction, and the length of instruction. Based on percentage ratings of their responses it was found that: (1) The state guide did not reflect the total desired experience needs of all students, (2) Basic experiences should be given during the first year and more difficult and technical experiences should be given during the later years, (3) Short intensive periods of instruction were preferred over longer periods of time, (4) There was little difference between boys' and girls' perception of the importance of the experiences, (5) Important experiences reflect the perceived needs of the students, and (6) Evaluations for retention and inclusion of those experiences rated important deserve closer analysis. This Ed.D. thesis was submitted to Colorado State College. (GR)
