Eaddy, Vanik S.
This investigation was undertaken to determine the perceptions of interns and agribusinessmen towards the technical internship in agricultural education at Auburn University. The findings of this report are based upon data supplied by 37 interns and 37 agribusinessmen who participated in the technical internship program from June, 1971 through August, 1973, and who responded to questionnaires provided them. Data from the returned instruments were tabulated using: (a) percentages, (b) frequency tabulations, and (c) rank ordering procedures. (Sample responses to survey questions are included in the section on analysis of data.) The findings of this report show that both interns and agribusinessmen were enthusiastic supporters of the internship approach to the development of professional and technical instructional proficiency in agriculture/agribusiness. An extensive appendix is attached which contains (a) a course outline, (b) a memorandum to teachers, (c) several forms, (d) examples of an intern's plan of study, (e) an assignment request to agribusiness, (f) a rating scale, (g) task sheets, (h) questionnaires, and (i) a selected bibliography.
