Study of Needs for Vocational-Technical Professional Personnel Development in Texas. Final Report.
Huffstutler, E. Vaughn; McCallon, Earl L.
This report presents the results of a study to determine the personnel development needs of teachers in vocational-technical education; to identify these needs in terms of competencies and instructional areas; to determine to what extent presently offered university courses are related to these specific competency needs; and to survey recent vocational-technical graduates in three teaching areas to determine what percent are teaching in the teaching field for which they prepared; teaching in an allied teaching field; or presently are employed in another occupation. The research project produced a matrix of personnel development needs by areas and competency clusters and a matrix of university course offerings (by clusters) and specific competencies. A follow-up study of 1,921 recent vocational-technical graduates in agriculture, home economics, and distributive education indicated that a significant number of graduates who are teaching are not teaching in an area related to their major field. The appendix includes the form letters and survey instruments used in the study. (Author)
