An Investigation of the Relationship Between Perceptions of Selected Groups Relative of the Role of VICA [Vocational Industrial Clubs of America] and Achievement of VICA Goals.
Ruark, Billie Joanne
The study attempted to answer six research questions designed to assess the perceptions of selected school administrators, teachers, students, and members of the Trade and Industrial Education staff of the Oklahoma State Department of Vocational and Technical Education relative to the roles of the Vocational Industrial Clubs of America (VICA). It was also desired to determine to what extent there is a relationship of the perceived roles to the achievement of the VICA goals and objectives. The data were gathered from five members of the Trade and Industrial Education staff; the other respondents were from ten schools, five identified as the location of the highest VICA goal achievement clubs and five identified as the location of the lowest VICA goal achievement clubs in the State. Significant differences were found on all research questions between all groups tested for particular concepts. It was concluded that the major factor which enhances a club in becoming a high VICA goal achievement club is one of positive perceptions relative to the role of VICA. Negative perceptions relative to the role of VICA impedes or prevents a club from becoming a high VICA goal achievement club. (AG)
