Summary

Questionnaire responses from 233 chief administrators of public junior colleges were analyzed to (1) measure the extent of experimentation in specific staff utilization practices, (2) analyze reasons for nonadoption of these practices, and (3) determine the effects of environmental conditions on such experimentation. The five practices were team teaching, variations in class size, use of teacher aides, use of language laboratories, and instructional television. In all except television, nonadoption showed a higher correlation with the chief administrator's attitude than with eleven situational or environmental factors. Nonadoption of television appeared to result from lack of funds more often than from lack of administrative support. It was concluded that, while some situational factors occasionally might serve as predictors, the personal attitude of the chief administrator was the most important factor affecting the adoption of innovative practices. This article is published in the "junior college journal," volume 37, number 2, October 1966. (wo)
