MOSS, JEROME, JR.
A SAMPLE OF 363 FULL-TIME ENROLLEES IN FOUR CURRICULUMS (AUTOMOTIVE, DRAFTING, ELECTRICAL, AND MACHINE SHOP) AT WILLIAM HOOD DUNWOODY INDUSTRIAL INSTITUTE WAS SELECTED TO TEST THE "PREVOCATIONAL EFFECTIVENESS" OF SENIOR HIGH INDUSTRIAL ARTS. THIRTY-FIVE VARIABLES WERE USED IN MEASURING THE EFFECT OF THE FOLLOWING ON ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT--(1) THE AMOUNT OF INDUSTRIAL ARTS TAKEN, (2) GRADES IN THOSE COURSES, (3) THEIR CONTENT, AND (4) THEIR OBJECTIVES.
