The purpose of this study was to determine as far as possible the extent of the subject-matter preparation of full-time seminary teachers in the areas of Book of Mormon, Old Testament, New Testament, and Church history and doctrine.
Answers to the following questions were sought:
1. How many semester hours of college credit have the teachers received in the areas of Book of Mormon, Old Testament, New Testament, and Church history and doctrine?
2. To what extent have the Standard Works been studied by the teachers?
3. How many books which were considered to be basic sources have been read by the teachers?
4. What were some of the other experiences that contributed to the teacher's preparation in subject matter?
5. What evidence of yearly growth, as indicated by semester hours of college credit received and books read, was shown by the teachers during their first five years of teaching?
Also sought was a standard of comparison that could be used to make a meaningful evaluation of the data gathered.
