Assessment of In-Service Vocational Teacher Education in Mississippi.
Handley, Herbert M.; Shill, James F.
Summarizing vocational educators' perceptions of how well they are able to execute specific performance tasks after completion of inservice training programs in Mississippi, the report is the second in a series of three. The effectiveness of two types of inservice programs was evaluated: those conducted by institutions and those conducted by the State Division of Vocational and Technical Education. The study was conducted to provide baseline data to be used in curriculum planning for improving teacher training programs. Data for the study were collected through the use of the Assessment of Inservice Teacher Education Scale. The vocational educators were asked to evaluate the level of their performance of 20 tasks. One thousand one hundred eighty-five vocational educators with more than three years teaching experience in the field and vocational education administrators were mailed questionnaires. The sample is based on the 781 responses. Results of the study distinguish between credit and noncredit workshops, service areas of teachers, level of performance reported, and educational level of respondents. (AG)
