THE PREDICTION OF OUTCOMES OF MDTA PROGRAMS, A PILOT STUDY.
EDGERTON, HAROLD A.; SYLVESTER, ROBERT W.
AN EXTENSION OF KNOWLEDGE OF THE FACTORS RELATED TO TRAINEE DROPOUTS IN MANPOWER DEVELOPMENT AND TRAINING ACT (MDTA) PROGRAMS WAS ATTEMPTED. THE FACTORS RELATED TO SUCCESS OF MDTA PROGRAMS WERE COMPUTED FOR ORGANIZATIONAL AND PROCEDURAL CHARACTERISTICS OF THE TRAINEES. BOTH RETENTION AND PLACEMENT SHOW SIGNIFICANT CORRELATION WITH CHARACTERISTICS OF THE PROGRAM ORGANIZATION AND PROGRAM MANAGEMENT, ENOUGH SO THAT EFFORTS TO IMPROVE THE STANDING OF AN MDTA PROGRAM, EITHER AS TO ITS RETENTION OR ITS PLACEMENT, SHOULD BE FRUITFUL. THE REAL PROBLEM IS THAT OF MAKING THE PROGRAMS FIT THE TRAINEES RATHER THAN TRYING TO SELECT TRAINEES TO FIT THE TRAINING PROGRAMS. THE NEXT STEP IS TO STUDY MORE INTENSELY THE EFFECTS OF PROGRAM ORGANIZATION, AND ADMINISTRATIVE AND INSTRUCTIONAL PRACTICES ON BOTH RETENTION AND PLACEMENT. (GD)
