Anxiety Indices Among Harcum Faculty.
Blai, Boris, Jr.
An anonymous survey of 70% (N=21) of Harcum Junior College's full-time faculty was conducted in the fall of 1976 in order to ascertain self-reported levels of anxiety and sources of anxiety among the faculty. Results indicated that 7.4% of the faculty felt a great deal of anxiety, 9.4% a considerable amount, 20.7% felt some, 21.1% felt little, and 41.4% felt no anxiety. Sources of anxiety for those respondents who reported some level of anxiety ranged from size of individual classes (66%) and adapting classes to individual differences in student ability, interest, and need (57%), to incompatible relationships with supervisors (26%) and faculty interpersonal relations (24%). It was concluded that, in general, the Harcum faculty expressed a low level of anxiety, particularly when compared to national sample rates. Survey data is reported in tabular form. (JDS)
