A Report on the Nature of the Use of Learning Activity Packages in Distributive Education Programs and the Determination of Change Orientation of Distributive Education Teachers.
Lucas, Stephen R.; And Others
The Interstate Distributive Education Curriculum Consortium (IDECC) completed 500 learning activity packages (LAPs) designed to develop 983 competencies for 69 jobs in distribution in 1974. The research was to determine: the degree to which distributive education (DE) teachers were using the IDECC LAPs, the attitudes of DE students in regard to the LAPs, and why some DE teachers were using the LAPs while others were not (measured by the Russell Scale to determine change orientation for vocational teachers). Of the 11 Consortium States, North Carolina was selected to be surveyed. Approximately 15% of North Carolina's DE teachers (38 subjects) were randomly selected, as well as a representative sample of their students, and asked to complete questionnaires. The teacher questionnaire resulted in a 73.68% response with 42.85% of the responding DE teachers reporting use of the LAPs and 57.15% reporting no use. There were 95 respondents to the student questionnaire. Usable return on the change orientation scale totaled 19. Findings and conclusions are reported according to three categories: the teacher questionnaire, the student questionnaire, and the change orientation scale. Four recommendations are presented and copies of the questionnaires are appended. (Author/MS)
