Graduate Teaching Assistants in Industrial Education Programs.
Gurbach, Thomas W.; Harris, Robert C.
Based on data collected for a study completed in the fall of 1972, the report presents baseline data concerning selected characteristics of personnel and situational factors relative to the graduate teaching assistantship system in industrial education programs throughout the United States. Chapter 1 deals with the nature of the study, the research problem, definitions, literature, population, and procedures. Chapter 2 offers a presentation of the results. The data from the surveys are tabulated and discussed. The study focuses on: (1) demographic characteristics of personnel holding assistantship positions, (2) the relationship of roles filled by teaching assistants to selected situational factors of their employment, and (3) practices employed in industrial education departments to facilitate maximum use of personnel in assistantship positions. The appendix includes the department head information form and the survey form for graduate teaching assistants in industrial education programs as used in the survey. (MW)
