Doctoral Graduates in Education From Louisiana State University, 1975-1978: A Follow-up Study. Volume 9, Number 1.
Blackmon, C. Robert; Stearns, Mary Louise
A followup study was conducted of the 62 Louisiana State University doctoral graduates of the College of Education from May 1975 through May 1978. A questionnaire was administered to gather data related to the graduate's experiences in and reactions to the doctoral program and on the relationship of that program to subsequent employment. An opinionnaire was administered to evaluate each graduate by the graduate's immediate supervisor. Data are presented on the results of the 39-item questionnaire based on 56 responses and on the results of the 23-item opinionnaire based on 45 responses. The graduates' questionnaire included the areas of related studies, present job status, an evaluation by each respondent of the doctoral preparation program experienced in the College of Education, and professional and civic activities. The items of the two surveys are presented with the response data, and conclusions of the study are provided. (SW)
