Functional Competencies Needed by Industrial Arts Instructors to Adequately Perform in Contemporary Industrial Arts Laboratory/Classrooms.
Miller, James Arthur
To identify functional competencies needed by instructors who teach in contemporary industrial arts programs, 75 functional competencies were incorporated into a questionnaire sent to industrial arts educators and supervisors throughout the United States, Canada, and the District of Columbia. From the 438 responses, representing 78.2 percent of the total sent out, the data were reported in tabular form according to Spearman's coefficient of rank correlation. Pertinent findings were that: (1) Close agreement existed between educators and supervisors concerning the importance of the functional competencies, (2) Personal qualities and behavioral characteristics generally were rated the most important, and (3) Competencies in teaching methods and techniques were rated more important than competencies in course content and related information. One conclusion was that there should be valid methods and techniques devised to help screen prospective industrial arts instructors in order to determine that they possess these characteristics and personal qualities.
