PILOT PROGRAMS IN HIGH SCHOOLS TO PREPARE STUDENTS FOR A WIDE SPECTRUM OF COMPUTING, RECORDING, AND BOOKKEEPING OCCUPATIONS.
STEWART, JEFFREY R., JR.
THIS PROJECT WAS CONDUCTED TO STUDY, GATHER DATA FROM, AND REPORT ON THE SUCCESS OF THE OPERATIONS OF PILOT PROGRAMS IN RECORDKEEPING, BOOKKEEPING, AND ACCOUNTING WHICH HAD BEEN IN TRIAL OPERATION DURING THE PREVIOUS ACADEMIC YEAR IN THREE VIRGINIA HIGH SCHOOLS. ONE URBAN, ONE SUBURBAN, AND ONE RURAL SCHOOL TOOK PART IN THE PILOT STUDY. THE PURPOSE OF THESE PILOT PROGRAMS WAS TO PREPARE YOUNG PEOPLE FOR THE NEWLY EMERGING OCCUPATIONS IN COMPUTING, RECORDING, AND BOOKKEEPING. THIS PROJECT WAS CONCERNED PRIMARILY WITH THE EVALUATION OF PILOT PROGRAMS, ALREADY COMPLETED. THE GENERAL PROCEDURE FOR THE EVALUATION WAS TO PAIR EACH TYPE OF PILOT SCHOOL (URBAN, SUBURBAN, RURAL) WITH A CONTROL SCHOOL OF THE SAME TYPE AND TO COMPARE STUDENT ACHIEVEMENTS BETWEEN THE TWO SCHOOLS. COMPARISONS OF PILOT-RECORDKEEPING AND CONTROL-BOOKKEEPING WERE MADE ON RECORDKEEPING ACHIEVEMENT, WHEREAS COMPARISONS OF PILOT-BOOKKEEPING AND CONTROL-BOOKKEEPING WERE MADE ON BOOKKEEPING ACHIEVEMENT. NO CONTROL COMPARISONS WERE MADE FOR PILOT-ACCOUNTING STUDENTS. (TC)
