FACTORS RELATED TO THE GRANTING OF COLLEGE-UNIVERSITY CREDIT FOR TRADE AND INDUSTRIAL EXPERIENCE IN INSTITUTIONS OFFERING INDUSTRIAL EDUCATION.
LAUDA, DONALD PAUL
THE OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY WERE TO (1) DETERMINE THE EXTENT OF GRANTING DEGREE CREDIT FOR TRADE AND INDUSTRIAL EXPERIENCE, (2) DETERMINE WHETHER OR NOT CREDIT GRANTING INSTITUTIONS CAN BE CLASSIFIED BY SELECTED TRAITS, (3) INVESTIGATE PROCEDURES, PREREQUISITES, AND TRANSFER REGULATIONS, AND (4) DEVELOP A RECOMMENDED PROCEDURE FOR GRANTING CREDIT. QUESTIONNAIRES WERE PILOT TESTED ON SEVEN INSTITUTIONS AND MEMBERS OF A GRADUATE SEMINAR, REVISED, AND MAILED TO 201 COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES WITH 100 PERCENT RESPONSE. SOME FINDINGS WERE--(1) 49 OR 24.38 PERCENT OF THE INSTITUTIONS SURVEYED GRANT CREDIT FOR TRADE AND INDUSTRIAL EXPERIENCE, AND OTHERS PLAN TO DO SO, (2) MOST INSTITUTIONS GRANT SUCH CREDIT TO FEWER THAN 10 CANDIDATES PER YEAR, (3) THE POLICY ON GRANTING CREDIT DIFFERS SIGNIFICANTLY BY TYPE OF INSTITUTION, SIZE, GEOGRAPHICAL LOCATION, AND TYPE OF INDUSTRIAL EDUCATION PROGRAM OFFERED, (4) MOST INSTITUTIONS REQUIRE A SPECIFIC NUMBER OF RESIDENCE HOURS COMPLETED, RECOMMENDATION BY PREVIOUS EMPLOYER, AND PRIOR ENROLLMENT IN THE INSTITUTION BEFORE CREDIT IS GRANTED, AND (5) MOST INSTITUTIONS USE A COMBINATION OF WRITTEN, ORAL, AND SKILLS TESTS TO EVALUATE COMPETENCE BEFORE GRANTING CREDIT.
