Standards of Excellence in Trade and Industrial Teacher Education: A Status Report. Summary Report.
Duenk, Lester G.
A 1990 study compared actual practice in trade and industrial education (T&I) degree and T&I option granting institutions with the standards delineated in section 2 of Standards of Excellence in T&I Education (U.S. Department of Education 1985). Descriptive data were compiled addressing the status of T&I teacher education in T&I undergraduate degree programs and T&I option undergraduate programs. Group 1, programs that offered degrees specifically titled "trade or industrial education," consisted of 28 respondents; group 2, programs that prepared persons for T&I teacher employment without a T&I degree title, consisted of 57 respondents. The instrument was an abbreviated version of the section covering standards for T&I teacher education. Data were transferred from the questionnaires to five tables that comprised the five phases of the study, namely: institutional characteristics, qualifications of T&I teacher educators, internship/inservice, program competencies, and sex equity. According to the findings, T&I teacher education programs could use the standards more fully in program planning and development. The percentages of T&I degree and T&I option programs that met or exceeded standards were reasonably consistent throughout the five delineated areas; there were differences of 8 percent or more in 14 of 39 categories. Of the five categories, sex equity showed the poorest rankings. (Appendixes include a list of degree title; a list of universities offering degree T&I education certification; and institutional responses to the questionnaires.) (YLB)
