FLEXIBILITY FOR VOCATIONAL EDUCATION THROUGH COMPUTER SCHEDULING.
ALLEN, DWIGHT W.
A DEMONSTRATION PROJECT WAS INITIATED TO SHOW THE FEASIBILITY OF INTRODUCING GREATER FLEXIBILITY INTO VOCATIONAL CURRICULUMS AND INTO THE PREVOCATIONAL DIMENSIONS OF NONVOCATIONAL CURRICULUMS THROUGH THE USE OF A COMPUTER-BASED SCHEDULING TECHNOLOGY. RESEARCH WAS PLANNED TO COVER A 3-YEAR PERIOD. THE 1ST YEAR'S RESEARCH WAS COMPLETED MAY 1, 1966, AND WAS THE TOPIC OF THIS REPORT. THE TWO TYPES OF SCHOOL INVOLVED WERE VOCATIONAL-TECHNICAL AND COMPREHENSIVE. THE CRITERIA USED IN THE SELECTION OF SCHOOLS INVOLVED A BALANCE AMONG RURAL, SUBURBAN, AND URBAN LOCATIONS AND A VARIETY OF TYPES IN GRADE ORGANIZATION, ENROLLMENT, AND POPULATION SERVED. RESULTS OF THE 1ST-YEAR EFFORTS INCLUDED (1) IDENTIFICATION OF RELEVANT AREAS TO BE INVESTIGATED DURING THE FINAL 2 YEARS, (2) COLLECTION OF BASELINE DATA TO BE USED IN A BEFORE-AFTER DATA COMPARISON, (3) EMPLOYMENT OF A COMPUTERIZED TECHNIQUE FOR CURRICULUM SIMULATION, AND (4) DEVELOPMENT OF A MULTIPLE REGRESSION TECHNIQUE FOR THE ANALYSIS OF CURRICULUM SCHEDULING. IT WAS CONCLUDED THAT THE PRINCIPAL PROJECT OBJECTIVE WOULD REMAIN UNCHANGED DURING THE FINAL 2 YEARS OF THE RESEARCH. (LP)
