Credentialing Trade and Industrial Teachers.
Orr, Ralph O'Dell
Using a trade competency test and a trade vocabulary test to disclose differences in performance on certain variables, this statewide survey compared secondary school trade and industrial teachers, non-teaching tradesmen, and secondary school industrial arts teachers within the State of Colorado. Profiles of the participants were developed, and performance was measured against experience and education. Analysis of the test scores confirmed the hypothesis that the scores would fall in descending order from trade and industrial teachers to tradesmen to industrial arts teachers. Although the intermediate differences were not significant, the differences between the highest and lowest groups were found to be significant. No significant correlations were found between performance and education or experience, except in the case of machine shop and woodwork teachers, whose performance on the trade competence test was related to length of time on the job. This Ph.D. dissertation was submitted to Colorado State University. (BH)
