An Evaluation of Supervisory Task Importance and Performance in the Ohio Cooperative Extension Service.
Leidheiser, Paul Conrad
A total of 276 respondents, who were faculty members in the Ohio Cooperative Extension Service, completed questionnaires. These respondents were county extension agents in agriculture, home economics, and administration. The objectives of the study were to determine (1) the relative importance of certain identified tasks of supervisors and how well these tasks are being performed, and (2) how the various Ohio Cooperative Extension Service faculty groups perceive the importance and performance of the various tasks expected of the supervisors. Conclusions are: (1) The importance and performance of supervisory tasks were perceived quite differently by groups of the Extension Service faculty when grouped by: position of employment, tenure, age, level of educational accomplishment, and subject matter major of the most advanced degree attained; (2) Extension faculty consistently view the importance of supervisory tasks higher than the performance of these tasks.
