STANDARDS FOR VOCATIONAL EDUCATION AS REFLECTED IN CALIFORNIA JUNIOR COLLEGE ACCREDITATION TEAM REPORTS.
STANTON, WILLIAM A.
THE MAJOR PURPOSE OF THIS STUDY WAS THE DEVELOPMENT OF A SET OF CRITERIA FOR EVALUATING JUNIOR COLLEGE VOCATIONAL PROGRAMS. THE AUTHOR ALSO STUDIED TRENDS IN THE NATURE OF COMMENDATIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS MADE BY VISITING ACCREDITATION TEAMS. THE NUMBERS AND TYPES OF SUCH STATEMENTS REPORTED IN A 1957 STUDY WERE COMPARED WITH THOSE OF STATEMENTS IN 146 REPORTS ON 75 JUNIOR COLLEGES BETWEEN 1957 AND 1966. STATISTICAL ANALYSIS FAILED TO SHOW THAT SPECIFIC INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAMS IMPROVE AS A DIRECT RESULT OF ACCREDITATION TEAM RESULTS. NOTABLE TRENDS IN VOCATIONAL EDUCATION INCLUDE INCREASED USE OF LAY ADVISORY COMMITTEES, GROWING NEED FOR IMPROVEMENT OF COORDINATION, AND EXPANSION AND DEVELOPMENT OF NEW PROGRAMS. EIGHT EVALUATIVE DIMENSIONS ARE DISCUSSED--(1) EFFECTIVE USE OF LAY ADVISORY COMMITTEES, (2) A RANGE OF OFFERINGS COMPATIBLE WITH STUDENT INTEREST AND ABILITY AND WITH COMMUNITY SURVEY RESULTS, (3) INTRASCHOOL, INTERAGENCY, AND INDUSTRY-EDUCATION COORDINATION, (4) OCCUPATIONALLY COMPETENT TEACHERS, (5) EFFECTIVE PLACEMENT AND FOLLOWUP PROCEDURES, (6) EFFECTIVE STUDENT RECRUITMENT AND SELECTION, (7) ADEQUACY OF FACILITIES AND EQUIPMENT, AND (8) CONTINUOUS EVALUATION.
