The Relative Importance of Specific Industrial Arts Objectives for Average and Retarded Students.
Gill, Roy Claire
This study investigated the emphasis placed on industrial arts objectives for average students and for retarded students, the relationship between certain factors in selecting the objectives for retarded students, and the difference in emphasis by industrial arts teachers and special education teachers on objectives for the mentally retarded students. After ten major objectives were identified, two questionnaires were sent to all Arizona public high school industrial arts and special education teachers. Data were analyzed with descriptive and inferential statistics and Spearman's Rank-Difference Correlation of Coefficent was used to test the 12 null hypotheses. It was found that most of the industrial arts teachers ranked the objectives for the retarded student in a different order than for the average student. Industrial arts teachers' and special education teachers' rank order for the objectives for the mentally retarded were similar. It was concluded that the teachers' attitudes regarding the importance of industrial arts in the education of the mentally retarded appeared to be significant in the selection of objectives for the retarded.
