A Study of Attitude and Teaching Performance of Degree and Non-Degree Teachers in Industrial Education.
Pfahl, Alvin Kenneth
To determine whether teachers with differing amounts of formal education have varying attitudes toward teaching and whether this affects their teaching performance, instruction of students taught by non-degree persons was compared with instruction by teachers with degrees. Questionnaires were completed by 149 industrial education instructors in Oregon's community colleges, secondary schools, and skill centers and by students in the instructors' classes. The population of instructors included those teachers having completed 25 or less quarter hours of professional preparation, those with 25 or more hours but less than a baccalaureate degree, and those with degrees. Each instructor completed the Vocational Industrial Teacher Attitude Scale. Data were analyzed using the analysis of variance and the Pearson-product moment correlation. It was found that: (1) There was no significant difference in attitude, (2) Non-degree teachers received a better rating by students than did teachers with a degree, and (3) Instructors with more than 24 hours of preparation but less than a baccalaureate had a higher correlation of attitudes toward teaching than the other groups.
