Abstract or Summary
  • Purpose of the Study The purpose of this study was to determine the effectiveness of three methods of changing vocational educators' sex-role perceptions of themselves and their sex-role perceptions of males and females to a more androgynous state. The hypotheses tested were: (1) there is no difference in sex -role perceptions of self among groups one, two, and three after the treatments; (2) there is no differ- . ence in sex-role perceptions of males among groups one, two, and three after the treatments; and (3) there is no difference in sexrole perceptions of females among groups one, two, and three after the treatments. Pr oc edur es This study used the pretest-posttest control group design. Sixty male and female Oregon State University Vocational Education students, summer 1977, volunteered to participate in the study and were randomly assigned to one of three treatment groups. The Dittman adaptation of the Bem Sex-Role Inventory was completed by all participants as a pretest and posttest. Groups received treatments as follows: group one experienced a lecture on sex-role perceptions and two placebo treatments; group two received the lecture, a slide treatment on eliminating stereotyped sex-role perceptions and a placebo treatment; and group three participated in the lecture, the slide presentation, and role-playing treatments all focused on expanding sex-role perceptions. The final sample consisted of 15 subjects in each of the three groups, 75 percent of the original sample. Group Androgyny Difference Scores were calculated from the Dittman adaptation of the BSRI, for running the analysis of covariance. The F-statistic tested the hypotheses for identifying if differences existed among the three groups for self sex-role perceptions and the perceived sex-roles of males and females. Hypotheses one and two were retained, and hypothesis three was rejected. The Least Significant Difference follow-up test identified that the difference in sex-role perceptions of females existed between groups one and three. Conclusions The groups did not differ in their perceptions of self and males but did differ in their perceptions of females. Group perceptions of female sex roles differed between group one which received the lecture treatment and group three which experienced the lecture, slide presentation, and role- playing treatments. It was concluded that the slide presentation and role-playing treatments were not any more effective in expanding sex-role perceptions to a more androgynous state than a lecture.
