Survey of the Status of Media Service in Iowa Public Schools.
McGrew, Mary Lou; Buckingham, Betty Jo
The Iowa Educational Media Association (IEMA) and the State Department of Public Instruction conducted a survey in the fall of 1976 on the status of media services in its 1,792 public schools; the return rate from mailed questionnaires was above 90%. Media services were assessed in terms of relative success in meeting state guidelines for materials, equipment, seating, personnel, and budget. Generally, the number of schools not meeting guidelines far exceeded those which did. The data collected are available on computer tape and on microfiche for use in research projects throughout the state. Appendices include (1) the research proposal presented to the IEMA Board, (2) preliminary data analysis procedures, (3) cover letters and survey instrument, (4) editing guidelines for completed instruments, (5) the preliminary survey report of May 1977, and (6) glossary.
