A Survey of Opinions on the Training of Teachers of Exceptional Children.
Schipper, William V.; Wilson, William C.
Reported are the findings of a state survey of 123 regular and special education teachers' and administrators' opinions on the training of teachers of exceptional children. Chapter 2, on the development of the instrument for identifying needs, includes brief sections on item selection, item grouping, instrument form, distribution, treatment of data, and determination of priority needs. Expressed priority needs (such as parent counseling and vocational education programs) relating to the community, colleges and universities, public schools, teachers, and the state agency are detailed for each group of respondents (such as special education supervisors and private agency representatives) in Chapter 3. A short summary in Chapter 4 outlines the need for the survey and information obtained from survey data (including a rank order of priorities as seen by the total sample and each referant group). Also provided are appendixes on the survey instrument and computer data results and tables, figures, and graphs illustrating statistics such as the rate of returns of referent group. (SB)
