Analysis of Textbook Requirements for an Associate Degree Level Electronic Communications Course as Reported by Technology Teachers in the Field.
Cheshier, Stephen R.
The overall goal of the study was to determine if a new text in electronic communications should be written, and if so, the nature of its content, depth, and format. A review of current related studies and study objectives are presented. A questionnaire was mailed to 50 post secondary technical schools, with 40 responding. Seven major objectives along with significant findings are listed. Tables detailing the areas of agreement concerning desirable text topics, textbook treatments, and other research findings are included. The study determined that present textbooks in electronics communication were rated below average by 62 percent of the teachers surveyed and that teachers have been changing texts about every three full semesters. Strengths and weaknesses of current texts are discussed and recommendations concerning the format of a desirable new text suggested. The appendix includes the questionnaire, summary of the study, comments received on the questionnaire, and statistical computations and tabulations. (MW)
