A study was made of Phase 1 of the long-term standards program for agricultural occupations programs for Illinois community colleges. The unique feature of this project was the procedure used to maximize the input of community college teachers in the validation and revision of the national standards. Survey instruments were sent to community college agriculture department heads who were asked to distribute the forms and to be responsible for collecting the completed forms. Follow-up by mail and telephone was conducted by the project staff to increase the response rate. After the data were processed, summarized, and analyzed, a state review committee met to assess the survey results and to revise or rewrite standards which had not received a high rating by teachers. It was found that 143 of the standards were rated "essential" or "important" by two-thirds or more of the 109 agriculture instructors in 22 community colleges in Illinois. Ten new standards were written by the review committee. Future surveys are planned to create a "final" list of standards. (The survey instrument and results are appended.) (CT)
