A Project to Determine Teaching Content. Final Report.
Middle Tennessee State Univ., Murfreesboro.
The purposes of this study were to identify specific tasks performed and information needed by vocational education administrative personnel in Tennessee, and to explore innovative approaches for utilizing this information in staff development activities. Each of the three administrator groups participated in a conference to identify tasks performed and information needed for vocational administrators. The resultant list was mailed to all members of each appropriate group in Tennessee who were to rate the items in terms of importance and frequency of performance. The report describes the procedures utilized in developing the lists, presents the lists and related information identified for each of the three administrative groups, and summarizes the reactions of vocational administrators throughout Tennessee with regard to the importance and frequency of performance of each task or item of information. The report also describes the conference conducted to develop methods for training new vocational administrators and existing personnel, utilizing the newly acquired information from the previous conference and survey. One-half of the report consists of appendixes containing lists of conference participants, conference and survey related materials, sample survey forms, and conference evaluation forms. (NJ)
