The Effect of Occupational Information Upon Secondary School Youth with Varying Interests Regarding a Teaching Career in the Field of Industrial Arts.
Eversoll, Robert I.
The purpose of this study was to experimentally ascertain the effect of career information, with and without audio distraction, on the attitudes and knowledge of students whose interests are similar to or different from successful industrial art teachers. The investigation involved 201 11th grade male students from six randomly selected public secondary schools. The data were obtained with a pre-questionnaire and interest measure prior to the occupational presentations and with a post-measure of attitude, posttest of knowledge, and post-questionnaire following the presentations of information. The mean scores were analyzed using the 2-way analysis of variance. It was concluded that the slide-tape program is one method that can be used to alter attitudes and transmit knowledge of industrial arts teaching to students, and that information without the distractor was more effective in altering attitudes and transmitting knowledge.
