An Analysis of Science Teacher Education Graduates from Three State Universities Currently Employed Full-Time in Nonacademic Positions. Abstract and Selected Tables from a Study.
Glass, Lynn W.
This study was designed to determine the career profiles of all science teacher graduates during the three study years from the Iowa Regents institutions. A questionnaire was mailed to each graduate, and responses were categorized into one of nine career profile patterns. An examination of the end point of each career pattern indicated that: 54 percent of the graduates currently are employed full-time in an academic position, 30.6 percent are employed in nonacademic positions, 9.8 percent are employed part-time, and 5.2 percent are not employed. A separate questionnaire was used to collect information on the graduates in nonacademic positions. Chi-square tests of significance were used on most of the 60 questionnaire items to identify those factors, skills, competencies, and experiences judged to be important by the respondents in terms of their current nonacademic positions.
