Identification of Performance-Oriented Competencies for Supervisors of Vocational Home Economics Education.
Brown, Ilene; Bice, Garry R.
The study was conducted to determine the performance requirements or behavior competencies expected of supervisors of home economics education which may be used as guidelines in developing a competency-based curriculum for the preparation of supervisors of vocational home economics education. Seven major concepts about supervision were identified and a guiding principle for each concept was developed. The concepts relate to: research, innovation, design, dissemination, demonstration, trial, and implementation. After screening and field testing two questionnaires, asking for ranking of basic principles and concepts related to the seven concepts, were sent to administrators, supervisors, teacher educators, supervising teachers, and general supervisors from colleges and secondary schools. Out of a sample of 174 individuals, 125 responded to the first questionnaire; of these 125 participants, 106 responded to the second questionnaire. Responses showed: (1) that all seven basic principles received consensus ratings of important or essential from 90% or more of the respondents, and (2) identified 74 of the 140 competencies related to the major concepts as important or essential. Several questions raised by the study are presented. A seven-page bibliography and a glossary are included. Agencies and institutions represented in the study and the questionnaires used are appended. (Author/EC)
