Standards for Industrial Arts Program Project. Report of Survey Data. Revised.
Dugger, William E., Jr.; And Others
This report contains an analysis of data collected during Phase 1 (spring 1979) of a project to develop and validate standards for industrial arts education programs. These data detail responses to four instruments devised by the project to survey fifty-four state and territorial supervisors of industrial arts and 2,235 public school principals, industrial arts chairpersons, and guidance coordinators identified in three national samples. Chapter 1 is an introduction which overviews the project and describes the data collection process. The middle eight chapters describe survey findings divided into these major areas: (1) philosophical views, (2) instructional program for industrial arts education, (3) industrial arts students, (4) industrial arts student organizations, (5) teachers of industrial arts, (6) industrial arts facilities, (7) finance, and (8) evaluation in industrial arts education. Over 100 tables are provided. Chapter 10 provides a summary and cites implications. Appendixes include questions from surveys of secondary schools and state-territorial supervisors and additional data analyses. (YLB)
