A Follow-Up Study of Recipients of the Doctor of Education Degree in Industrial Arts Education from Colorado State College.
Moreland, Henry Clifford, Jr.
Fifty graduates (96.1 percent) of Colorado State College during the years 1960-1968, receiving a degree of doctor of education in industrial arts education, returned a questionnaire designed to collect information about the effectiveness of the doctoral program in preparing them to function in their current positions. The study covered the graduates' backgrounds, views concerning their doctoral training in light of their professional responsibilities, and their suggestions and recommendations for the improvement of the doctoral program. Conclusions were: (1) The majority of graduates were well pleased with the doctoral program in industrial arts, (2) The philosophical scope of the department and doctoral program was somewhat limited to industrial arts, (3) Doctoral advisors were well qualified and competent but their time for assisting was too limited, (4) Technical courses should continue to earn credit in doctoral programs, (5) The majority of the doctoral graduates entered positions in the field of higher education while some assumed administrative responsibilities, (6) In general, the graduate faculty was excellent, and (7) Graduates considered their associations with other doctoral students and the faculty as the most valuable aspect of their doctoral program. This Ed.D. thesis was submitted to the University of Northern Colorado. (GR)
