STATE BOARD FOR VOCATIONAL EDUCATION STUDENT FOLLOW-UP RESEARCH PROPOSAL.
MAILEY, PATRICK J.
THE PURPOSE OF THE PROPOSAL WAS TO DEVELOP A SYSTEM WHICH WOULD EFFICIENTLY FOLLOWUP STUDENTS WITH VOCATIONAL PREPARATORY TRAINING. THE RESULTS WOULD GIVE THE FEDERAL, STATE, AND LOCAL SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS FACTUAL INFORMATION ON THE PRODUCTIVENESS OF VOCATIONAL COURSES, AND WOULD INDICATE WHETHER THE STUDENT WAS EMPLOYED IN THE OCCUPATION FOR WHICH HE WAS TRAINED. STEPS ARE OUTLINED FOR A FOLLOWUP SYSTEM DESIGNED TO--(1) GENERATE A HIGH PERCENTAGE OF RESPONSE, (2) PERMIT EASE OF ADMINISTRATION AT THE SCHOOL AND INSTRUCTOR LEVELS, AND (3) CAPTURE THE NECESSARY DATA WITH WHICH TO MAKE VALID STATISTICAL REPORTS AND STUDIES ON THE EFFECTIVENESS OF VOCATIONAL PREPARATORY TRAINING. THE SYSTEM WOULD USE BOTH PSYCHOLOGICAL AND MECHANICAL METHODS OF ENCOURAGING VOLUNTARY RESPONSE FROM THE FORMER STUDENT, AND IS DESIGNED TO SIMPLIFY THE PAPER WORK AND THE ACTUAL FOLLOWUP ACTIVITIES AT THE SCHOOL. A LIST OF SOME OF THE QUESTIONS WHICH THE FOLLOWUP STUDY COULD ANSWER, SUGGESTED USES OF THE STUDY, GENERAL FLOW CHART, TIMETABLE, AND SAMPLE INFORMATION FORMS ARE INCLUDED. (SL)
