McCrory, David L.
This monograph presents a compilation and review of selected technology education research literature published from 1980 through 1986. The paper seeks to reflect the breadth and variety of disciplined inquiry during this important period as the profession changed its name and focus from industrial arts to technology education. The review is divided into sections representing major topic categories likely to be of interest to researchers. Major sections are history, philosophy, and objectives; human resources related studies; status studies; curriculum; learning process variables; instructional media, materials, and methods; student personnel and guidance; facilities; evaluation; teacher education; administration and supervision; and professional concerns. Each section ends with a summary and inferences related to the studies included in the section. A concluding section discusses general findings and recommendations. A 21-page listing of references is appended. (SK)
