THE POTENTIAL CONTRIBUTION OF PSYCHOLOGY TO INTER-DISCIPLINARY RESEARCH IN VOCATIONAL-TECHNICAL EDUCATION.
HEISERMAN, MARY; LEWIS, EDWIN C.
THE PURPOSE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO COLLECT INFORMATION CONCERNING THE STATUS OF PSYCHOLOGICAL RESEARCH RELATED TO VOCATIONAL EDUCATION, ORGANIZE THE INFORMATION TO PROVIDE GUIDANCE AND STIMULATION FOR DEVELOPING AND EXECUTING RESEARCH TO FILL CURRENT GAPS, COOPERATE WITH OTHER DISCIPLINES IN DEVELOPING RESEARCH PROPOSALS, AND PROPOSE AND DEVELOP METHODS BY WHICH PSYCHOLOGISTS CAN CONTRIBUTE TO RESEARCH IN VOCATIONAL AND TECHNICAL EDUCATION. FROM A SEARCH OF THE LITERATURE, SEVEN CATEGORIES OF RESEARCH HAVE BEEN IDENTIFIED--(1) ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT, (2) COUNSELING, INCLUDING TECHNIQUES AND USE OF TESTS, (3) DEMOGRAPHIC CHARACTERISTICS OF STUDENTS, EMPHASIZING CHARACTERISTICS OF RURAL STUDENTS AND IMPLICATIONS FOR EDUCATION, (4) TEACHING METHODS, (5) OCCUPATIONAL CHOICE, INCLUDING THE PROCESS OF VOCATIONAL DEVELOPMENT AND FACTORS INFLUENCING CHOICE OF A SPECIFIC OCCUPATION, (6) SCHOOL ENVIRONMENT, EMPHASIZING VARIABLES WITHIN THE SCHOOL SETTING THAT INFLUENCE STUDENT GOALS AND PERFORMANCE, AND (7) STUDENT CHARACTERISTICS, INCLUDING ASPIRATION LEVEL, INTERESTS, AND ABILITIES. RESEARCH CONCERNING STUDENT ASPIRATION LEVEL AND VOCATIONAL INTERESTS IS SUMMARIZED AND ITS IMPLICATIONS FOR TEACHING AND RESEARCH IN VOCATIONAL AND TECHNICAL EDUCATION IS DISCUSSED. THE FINAL REPORT WILL CONTAIN SUMMARIES IN THE OTHER FIVE AREAS AND WILL RECOMMEND STUDIES WHICH CAN AND SHOULD BE UNDERTAKEN BY PSYCHOLOGISTS. A LIST OF 69 REFERENCES IS INCLUDED. THIS REPORT APPEARS IN "APPENDIX OF FINAL RESEARCH REPORTS FOR PROJECT IN RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT IN VOCATIONAL AND TECHNICAL EDUCATION, NON-METROPOLITAN AREAS" (ED 011 069) WHICH SUPPLEMENTS VT 001 546.
