Associate Degree Technicians' Judgments on Quality of Instruction and Course Relevancy.
Gillie, Angelo C.
This study is based on a total population of about 6,200 graduates of electronics and drafting design curriculums from each of the years 1955-1969. Thirty-three percent of this population was selected in a stratified random manner. The factors considered in this portion of the study deal with the judgmental values of the respondents for the four basic courses and twelve specialized topics for each curriculum. The judgments concerned: (1) quality of instruction, (2) need for coursework immediately after graduation, (3) need for coursework now, and (4) anticipated need of basic courses for future jobs. These data are graphically displayed to show the relationships between the judgments and the number of years since graduation. It was found that judgments relative to certain courses and topics varied in terms of years after graduation. Specific trends are given detailed treatment in the appropriate sections. Related documents are available as VT 012 725 and VT 013 460. (Author/GEB)
