The purposes of this study were (1) to analyze the findings afforded by a questionnaire sent to twenty-seven leading teacher training colleges, relative to provisions for off-campus student teaching in the field of home economics education as followed by these institutions; and (2) to determine any uniformity in the development of competencies expected of the new teacher by these institutions.

It has been assumed that the findings of this study may enable the writer to evaluate in an analytical way the provisions for off-campus student teaching in the field of home economics in some of the leading institutions for Negro students in the United States. It was assumed, again, that the appraisal of the program of institutions participating in the study may furnish data which might enable cooperating teachers to work more effectively in the preparation of the prospective teachers. And finally, that some policies may be identified which are essential for the functioning of an adequate program in laboratory experiences for the prospective teacher.

This study was limited to the information given by a group of teacher trainers working in degree-granting institutions that offer teacher training in home economics, with provisions for off-campus experiences.
