Review and synthesis of research in agricultural education by J. Robert Warmbrod( Book )

3 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over 400 studies were considered in preparing this report on agricultural education research conclusions, trends, methodology, and needs. Though emergence of correlational and experimental research is evident, research in agricultural education has been largely descriptive. Weaknesses in probability sampling and survey techniques have been evident, especially relative to nonresponse. Implementation of findings remains a major problem, though pilot programs, popularized reports, and coordinated approaches hold promise of alleviating the problem. Individual graduate research studies have been most prevalent, and these have been limited by short duration and have lacked cumulative effects and chances of implementation. Coordinated studies have been conducted on employment opportunities and needed competencies. The current research reflects new developments and interest in curriculum, post-high school technical education, supervised experience, innovations, evaluation, and personnel roles. Conclusions and further needs were identified in these and several other areas including (1) instructional materials, (2) teaching and learning, (3) student organizations, (4) general agriculture, (5) personnel preparation, (6) administration and supervision, and (7) research design.

The liberalization of vocational education by J. Robert Warmbrod( Book )

2 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reports and studies on the achievements of vocational education over the last 10 years suggest that vocational education has not succeeded in offering programs that adequately prepare high school students to enter the world of work. Vocational training in specific skills at the secondary level is not sufficient for future employment since other, additional skills (reading, writing, and math skills and sociability) are needed. The separation between general education and vocational education has a detrimental effect on students if intellectual growth and actual experience are perceived as two unrelated processes. The two areas should be reconciled because general education offers important skills necessary for occupational success. To achieve this reconciliation, vocational education in secondary schools should broaden its purpose and scope beyond skill training and come to a realization that knowledge in other areas is needed in the world of work. This has wide implications for agricultural education and teacher educators if the vocational and educational needs of the student are to be met. A list of references is included. (Ec)
A report on the status and future direction of vocational-technical agriculture education in Michigan by J. Robert Warmbrod( Book )

3 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report provides a description of the status of vocational agricultural education in Michigan in preparation for statewide planning to meet the educational needs of the state's agricultural sector. The report includes three major sections. The first section summarizes each of the four reports that were completed by the project staff at Michigan State University: (l) a baseline survey of secondary agricultural instructors in Michigan; (2) status and trends of vocational-technical education in agriculture; (3) opinions of secondary school principals of schools that have dropped, added, or maintained secondary agriculture programs; and (4) employer opinions about graduates of secondary agricultural education programs. The summary statements presented are designed to emphasize and highlight the findings of the various reports that have direct implications for formulating recommendations for policy and program changes in vocational and technical education in agriculture in Michigan. The second major section reports the findings and recommendations of the External Review Committee. Information about the review committee, its activities, and its recommendations are presented.

Effects of perceived involvement of stakeholders on administrators' readiness for utilization of program evaluation results by Lisa A Kitinoja( )

2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The evaluation reports and instruments of measurement were field and pilot tested using personnel in Ohio. Construct validity and internal reliability were assessed. A simple random sample of 180 county directors was selected from the 1989-90 directory of U.S. CES personnel, and then randomly assigned to one of the nine treatment groups. Three mailings of the survey instrument resulted in a 94 percent response rate. Subsequent analysis showed that the groups did not differ on any of the antecedent variables
The Effect of Contract Grading on Student Performance by L. H Newcomb( Book )

2 editions published between 1973 and 1974 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study was designed to investigate the effect of contract grading on the following variables: student performance on a cognitive posttest, final grade received in the course, student attitude toward the course, the amount of assigned reading completed by the students, the amount of time students devoted to the course, and the degree to which students perceived their individual needs to be met by the course. Six hypotheses were formulated and investigated. Subjects were students in two sections of a college course and the sample was replicated using the same course the following terms. Contract grading was randomly assigned to one section and conventional grading was assigned to the other section. The same instructor taught both groups. Contract grading affected student performance no differently than did conventional grading. A recommendation is made that a subsequent experiment be conducted employing a design allowing all that was done in this study while specifying a more accurate definition of conventional grading. The appendix contains the grade contract used in the study. (Rc)

Social Background, Personality and Attitudinal Factors Influencing the Decision to Volunteer and Level of Involvement Among Adult 4-H Leaders. Summary of Research 39 by Frederick R Rohs( Book )

1 edition published in 1985 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study was conducted to investigate, using a portion of Smith's Sequential Specificity Model, the relationship between social background, personality, and attitudinal factors and the participation of adult volunteers in the 4-h program in Ohio. Data were collected from a sample of 300 adult 4-h volunteers in Ohio through a mailed questionnaire; a response rate of 72 percent was achieved. The study found that the social background factors positively associated with continued participation were (1) having children in 4-h and (2) having a spouse as a leader. Previous experience as a 4-h member was negatively associated with continued participation. Age, length of residence in the community, and number of children under the age of 9 years were positively associated with a leader's length of service. Number of children ages 12-14 was negatively associated with length of service, suggesting that as a leader's children leave the program, the leader stops serving. Homemakers contributed more hours of service than persons in other categories. Several attitudinal factors, such as attractiveness of 4-h, perceived instrumental value of the leader, flexibility, and influence of significant others, were all positive for involvement in 4-H. Finally, the study determined that a leader's length of service increased if he/she were older, had a spouse as a leader, had children in 4-h, was not a laborer, and perceived 4-h as having something to offer the leader personally. The study recommended that further research be conducted on additional attitudinal and personality factors that may influence volunteering, and investigate why the relationships found in this study, such as previous members failing to volunteer, occur.

State-Level Administrative Structure and the Role of State Supervisors. Summary of Research by Kirby, Jr Barrick( Book )

1 edition published in 1981 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study was conducted to determine the following: the characteristics of state-level administrative structure for vocational education within state departments of education; the current role and the expected role of state supervisors of vocational agriculture as perceived by high school teachers and state supervisors of vocational agriculture, and the relationship between state-level administrative structure for vocational education and current and expected roles of state supervisors of vocational agriculture. A two-phase study was conducted by sending questionnaires to (1) 50 head state supervisors of vocational agriculture and (2) a random sample of 504 high school teachers of vocational agriculture in 19 states (80 percent response), and all 196 state supervisors of vocational agriculture (92 percent response). Data collected resulted in the classification of state-level administrative structure of vocational agriculture into four categories depending on degree of authority of the state supervisors. State supervisors and teachers had similar perceptions of the current role of state supervisors of vocational agriculture; they were also similar in their perception of the expected degree of authority of state supervisors at the same level as current degree of authority. Recommendations were made for further research into the actual activities performed by state supervisors and the degree and nature of contact between state supervisors and local teachers of vocational agriculture.

Factor Analysis of an Instrument to Measure Perceptions About Adult Agricultural Education Programs by Oren L Christmas( Book )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Research identified the dimensions (factor structure) of an instrument designed to measure perceptions about adult agricultural education using factor analysis. Objectives were to factor analyze the items comprising the instrument, describe the factors identified, and describe the reliability of the subsets of items that comprise the identified factors. Data were from a study of factors influencing the occurrence of adult agricultural education programs. Nineteen items that measured the perceptions of superintendents, principals, and vocational agriculture instructors toward adult agricultural education programs were used in the factor analysis. Perceptions were measured with a five-point Likert scale. Four factors were identified in the 19-item instrument. The factor structure defined through factor analysis indicated that the instrument measured the following dimensions of the perceptions: benefit, need, instructor, and clientele. Coefficients of internal consistency indicated that the subsets of items measuring each of the four factors were reliable. (Ylb)
Manpower Needs and Employment Opportunities for Workers NeedingKnowledge and Skill in Agriculture. Technical Education in and for RuralAreas, Report Number 2 by J. Robert Warmbrod( Book )

1 edition published in 1966 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Three types of firms in a 14-county area were surveyed to determine the number of workers with agricultural competencies required in the off-farm agricultural occupations and to compare employment opportunities in farm and off-farm agricultural occupations. Of 77,868 workers in 384 firms in areas of less than 25,000 population, 18 percent were in job titles requiring agricultural competency. An increase of 35 percent in the number of agricultural employees would be required within 5 years, and 97 percent would need post-high school education. Employment opportunities were greatest in agricultural machinery, livestock marketing, seed and fertilizer, feedmill and elevator, and agricultural sales and service positions. Of 2,960 workers in agricultural firms in areas of over 25,000 population, 75 percent were in job titles requiring agricultural competency. An increase of 24 percent in the number of agricultural employees would be required within the next 5 years with the greatest opportunities in horticulture, feedmill and elevator, agricultural machinery and construction, and livestock marketing jobs. There were 22,599 commercial farm operators and 5,909 hired farm workers in the 14-county area. In the next 5 years, 1,087 farm operators would be needed to replace operators of farms with more than $10,000 gross sales. For each farm operator replacement needed, approximately 3.5 workers with agricultural skills would be needed in nonfarm business. (Jm)

Manpower Needs in Environmental Management. Research Report of a Graduate Study by John H Hillison( Book )

1 edition published in 1972 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report summarizes a study designed to assess current and future manpower needs in wastewater treatment, water treatment, and air pollution control, as well as perform task analyses for the purpose of developing courses of study and instructional materials. Data were collected by means of interviews for all 10 air pollution control areas in Ohio, eight wastewater and water treatment facilities for Ohio cities with a population under 100,000, and eight wastewater and water treatment facilities for Ohio cities with a population over 100,000. Data were collected by mail questionnaire for 200 randomly selected wastewater and water treatment facilities for Ohio cities with a population under 100,000. An anticipated increase of 109 persons (a 31 percent increase) in all wastewater treatment positions from 1971 to 1974 was reported. An increase of 156 persons (a 12 percent increase) is expected from 1971 to 1974 in water treatment positions, and a 119 percent increase (152 persons) is anticipated from 1971 to 1974 in air pollution control positions. These increased personnel needs justify the development of training programs in environmental management occupations. A proposed curriculum for a 2-year program in this area is included. Numerous tables present the data. (Ag)
