Training Wise Professional Adjustment of Teachers
Training wise professional adjustment status of teachers was examined by the investigator on a sample of 792 teachers. Teachers have been classified into two categories viz. trained and untrained teachers. To evaluate the status of professional adjustment of teachers, a tool viz. “Manual on Teachers Professional Adjustment” was used which was prepared and standardized by the investigator. The reliability and validity of the tool were found 0.89 and 0.66 respectively. On the basis of percentile rank and professional adjustment scores, professional adjustment status of teachers have been classified into three levels viz. well-adjusted, average-adjusted low-adjusted. Analysis of data was done by t-test and χ2 test through SPSS version 13.0 and Prism 3.0. This study reveals that there is no significant difference between professional adjustment of trained and untrained teachers. But, there is significant difference of proportions (percentages) between trained and untrained teachers at three levels of professional adjustment. In well adjusted level, highest percentage is of trained teachers, while lowest percentage is recorded for untrained teachers. In mediocre group, higher proportion is reported for untrained teachers, while lowest proportion is recorded for married teachers. The trained teachers are ahead of others in low adjusted count, while untrained group to be lowest.
