A Profile of Female Physical Education Students in Teacher Preparation.
Jones, Margaret A.
Two hundred and fifty college and university physical education departments offering major degrees to females participated in a survey to determine the degree of uniformity between professional preparation programs. Degrees offered, types of bachelor's degrees offered, National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education status, current enrollment, and the grade point average required for graduation were elements considered by the researchers. For the undergraduate programs, major goals of the department, certification options open to students, faculty size, number of female major students, and the grade point average needed for graduation were investigated. Variations between institutions were discovered regarding all of the factors examined. A lack of preservice training in coaching skills, officiating procedure, and advanced skill level competency requirements was apparent. (LH)
