Beyond Perception: A Pretest and Posttest Evaluation of a Regional Internet Extension Inservice Training
An Internet inservice training titled "Soil Acidity and Liming" was offered to county Extension agents representing six states (Alabama, Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginia). A Web page was constructed with materials provided by several specialists, and Listserv questions received responses from nine specialists representing the six states. A pretest and posttest were submitted by the agents on-line, along with their responses to a brief questionnaire. The questionnaire responses show that most of the agents were very receptive to this method of inservice training. The pretest and posttest scores show that the training resulted in a significant increase in knowledge of the subject matter presented.
