Abstract or Summary
  • The major thrust of this research was to design, test, and perfect an accurate and effective assessment technique, which would result in becoming an assessment model. For the purpose of developing this assessment model, the employment need for full-time instructors of occupational subjects in the community colleges within the state of Oregon was assessed. This assessment model was so designed that, in the process of development, it would determine the degree of relationship between the full-time occupational instructor needs for the 1971-72 and 1976-77 school years, and to show the relative growth of Oregon's occupational education programs during the next five years as predicted from the demand for full-time occupational education instructors. Successful completion of the assessment model would answer three questions: (1) What were the number of new full-time position needs on June 1, 1971, the ending of the 1970 school year? (2) What were the number of new full-time position needs on March 20, 1972, the date of the assessment? (3) What new full-time position needs were estimated for the school year 1976-77? To provide direction for answering the three indicated questions, two null hypotheses were formulated to test the findings: (1) There is no significant relationship between the needs for the 1971-72 year and the 1976-77 occupational instructor estimates. (2) There is no significant difference in mean estimate between 1971-72 and 1976-77 occupational instructor needs. Thirteen individuals who had the area of responsibility for the individual college-wide administration of the program of occupational education were selected for completing the assessment. These college administrators, by assisting with the development of this model, tended to develop a more positive attitude toward the necessity of making a more accurate and effective assessment. This is attributed to the personal contact and interview technique which utilized a survey questionnaire and a common interview guide. Analyses of data revealed a significant relationship at the .01 percent level between the 1971-72 occupational instructor employment needs and the 1976-77 estimates. A significant difference at the .01 percent level was found between the two mean instructor estimates for the 1971-72 and 1976-77 school years. Since the mean estimate for the 1976-77 school year was larger than the mean estimate for 1971-72, it was proposed that, on the average, Oregon's community college occupational education programs can expect to experience a significant growth of about 34 percent as indicated by their demand for occupational instructors. Analyses of data revealed that the technical programs cluster will have the most instructor need growth. The clusters, service occupations, forestry, and home economics will also have considerable instructor need growth, while agriculture, marketing/management, health occupations, and marine technology are indicated as those that will have the most significant comparative rank loss instructor need during the next five years.
