Loadman, William E.; Holcomb, Zelda J.
A follow-up study was conducted of graduates of the College of Education at Ohio State University (OSU). A questionnaire obtained information regarding: (l) present job status; (2) job satisfaction; (3) student teaching experience; (4) attitudes toward preservice academic training; (5) educational background and aspirations; and (6) demographics. The results of these analyses are presented in this technical report. Demographic information and select questionnaire items for each sample year are presented in tabular form. Based on these tables, a profile of each sample year is presented. The next section contains a discussion of questionnaire items by employment subgroup (teaching, education-related field, noneducation-related field). The subgroups are discussed for each sample year, and differences within those years by program area, sex, and teaching level are presented. A comparison between years of each subgroup is also presented. The next section contains a discussion of a group of items regarding the student teaching experience and a group of items dealing with the educational background of the respondents. Appendices contain the follow-up questionnaire and the two informational letters mailed with it. The statistical analyses that produced significant results are also in the appendix. (JD)
