An Evaluation of Ten Leadership Development Programs for Graduate Students in Vocational Education.
Moss, Jerome, Jr.; And Others
Intended to help others conducting leadership development programs, this document summarizes the procedures for and results of the evaluation of 10 vocational education leadership development programs. The programs were at the following institutions: Colorado State University, Indiana State University, Iowa State University, Mississippi State University, North Carolina State University, the University of Georgia, the University of Maryland, and the University of Minnesota. (Two programs were offered twice, making 10.) After a section on background information, the second section describes the evaluation design, procedures used, and the study's limitations. Results are reported in the third section, and highlights of the results appear in the fourth section. The document concludes with recommendations, 12 references, and 15 appendices. The appendices contain a program description, participant description form, post-program survey instrument, the Leader Attributes Inventory, 6-month behavior and performance survey instrument, evaluation summaries of the individual programs, and the distribution of retrospective scores. The following recommendations are reported: (1) the success of the 10 programs justifies implementing more programs for graduate students; (2) leadership development programs should include careful course structure to focus on objectives, help for participants to construct a cognitive model of leadership, team-building experiences, the use of self-assessment instruments, opportunities for guided practice in applying the leadership attributes to be changed; and (3) the use of the Leader Attributes Inventory.
