A Follow-Up Study of Ph.D. Graduates from The Ohio State University with a Major in Industrial Technology Education.
Bettis, Glenn Earl
This followup study of graduates who received a doctorate with a major in industrial technology education from The Ohio State University through the 1971 calendar year was conducted to: (1) determine the graduates' professional experiences since graduation, (2) obtain their evaluation of and suggestions for improving the program, (3) determine the services the University should provide after graduation, and (4) derive implications for program revision. Data were gathered by means of a mailed questionnaire received from 88.9 percent of the 90 living graduates. Among the major findings were: (1) Before or during the time graduates were pursuing the doctorate, 8.8 percent had experience in elementary school teaching, 75 percent had secondary teaching experience, and 71.3 percent had college teaching experience, (2) The greatest reason for selecting The Ohio State University for graduate study was available financial assistance, (3) The aspect of the doctoral program that contributed most to the graduates' professional development was course work, and (4) Graduate research associateships contributed more to the graduates' professional development than did graduate teaching assistantships. A sample copy of the questionnaire is appended. (Author/SB)
