An Evaluation of the Industrial Arts Teacher Education Program at Black Hills State College by the Graduates.
Edwards, Leonard D.
The major purpose of this study was to evaluate the importance of the basic elements of the courses taught in the industrial arts teacher education program at Black Hills State College. Another purpose was to obtain data relative to the status and geographic location of the graduates. A list of 86 graduates who majored in industrial arts from 1960 through 1969 was obtained and each one was sent an information form developed by the investigator, with a total of 92 percent returned. Findings were that the majority resided outside of South Dakota, that 75 percent were employed in the field of education, and that almost one-half had received advanced degrees. It was concluded that the program is deficient in terms of facility, equipment, and program of offerings, and that more emphasis should be placed on modern industrial processes in all areas. The areas of drafting, woodworking, and plastics appeared to be satisfactory, while six other areas lacked adequate preparation. (Author/GEB)
