Abstract or Summary
  • The purpose of this research was to determine the common professional training needs, proficiency and managerial requirements of Oregon community college physical education instructors. The respondents in this study were instructors who teach physical education activity courses PE 180 - 185 - 190 in Oregon community colleges. Four major tasks were involved in this study: 1. Construction of a professional education competencies instructor questionnaire. 2. Collection of data. 3. Data analysis to determine if significant differences existed among the competencies for community college physical education instructors. 4. Factor analysis of data to determine the common professional education competencies needed by community college physical education instructors. Procedures The study was accomplished through the construction, validation, and utilization of a professional education competency mail-survey questionnaire of 42 competencies using a five-point Likert-type scale. The 90 respondents rated each competency and, classified it as being a physical education competency or a general education competency. The collected data was analyzed by analysis of variance to test for differences among mean scores. A test of Least Significance difference was administered on four competencies which were rejected by the analysis of variance. A Chi-Square test was used to determine if competencies were physical education competencies or general education competencies. Conclusions From the results of this study, the following conclusions are reported: 1. The mail survey questionnaire containing 42 professional education competencies with a five-point Likert-type scale was a satisfactory method of securing data for the study. 2. Generally, the testing of the competency mean scores indicated that the Oregon community colleges were alike in their responses. The two-way classification analysis was used to test the hypothesis that there is no significant difference between sex effect, size effect, or interaction effect among Oregon community college physical education instructors. The tests indicate that for the 42 competencies measured, 122 were retained and 4 rejected, 3. The 90 Oregon community college physical education instructors resembled one another in terms of how they responded to the professional education competencies in this study. 4. The common professional education competencies identified in this study verify that the professional educational competencies needed by community college physical education instructors should logically be offered in a common teacher training effort. 5. The results indicated that factor analysis is appropriate for developing groupings of common instructional and managerial professional education competencies that may be used as a basis for community college curricular development for purposes of training instructors of the type included in this study. 6. There is some evidence that sex effect difference of community college instructors may be an important variable for future competency studies. 7. Of the 42 competencies tested, 12 were classified as physical education competencies and 30 were classified as general education competencies.
