A PROPOSED MODEL FOR AN INFORMATION STORAGE AND RETRIEVAL SYSTEM FOR REPORTING JOB PLACEMENT FOLLOW-THROUGH DATA OF PERSONS TRAINED IN INDUSTRIAL EDUCATION PROGRAMS IN CALIFORNIA PUBLIC SCHOOLS. TENTATIVE DRAFT.
HARRIS, WAYNE M.
THE PURPOSES OF THIS STUDY WERE TO DEVELOP A MODEL FOR COMPARING VOCATIONAL JOB PLACEMENT WITH ENROLLMENT AND TO MAKE RECOMMENDATIONS FOR ITS APPLICATION ON A STATEWIDE BASIS. THE MODEL WAS ESTABLISHED THROUGH SEARCHING LITERATURE, CONSULTING WITH EDUCATORS AND ELECTRONIC DATA PROGRAMERS, AND OBSERVING EXISTING PROGRAMS. IT WAS ESSENTIALLY A DATA COLLECTION PROCEDURE AND A DATA PROCESSING PROGRAM FOR SUBSEQUENT HANDLING AND STORAGE OF THE DATA. IT USES FEEDBACK AND ERROR CONTROL FEATURES. THE PRESCORED CARD WAS SELECTED FOR THE QUESTIONNAIRE INSTRUMENT. RESPONSE POSITIONS, PUNCHED OUT BY HAND, ARE READ DIRECTLY BY VARIOUS ELECTRONIC DATA PROCESSING TECHNIQUES. THE REGISTRATION FORMS, VERIFICATION OF ENROLLMENT AND ADDRESSES, AND THE IN-CLASS FOLLOWUP FORMS ARE COMPLETED BY ALL INDUSTRIAL EDUCATION STUDENTS WHILE STILL IN SCHOOL. THE FOLLOWUP FORMS ARE LATER MAILED TO THE STUDENTS. STANDARDIZED FORMS WERE DEVELOPED FOR (1) STANDARDIZED REGISTRATION FOR JUNIOR COLLEGES, (2) VERIFICATION OF ENROLLMENT, (3) VERIFICATION OF ADDRESSES, (4) IN-CLASS FOLLOW-THROUGH, AND (5) OUT-OF-CLASS FOLLOW-THROUGH. THE SYSTEM, AS PLANNED, MAY STAND ALONE, OPERATE IN CONJUNCTION WITH OTHER ELECTRONIC DATA PROCESSING PROJECTS, OR BECOME A PART OF LARGER INFORMATION STORAGE AND RETRIEVAL SYSTEMS. IT IS VERSATILE AND WILL ACCEPT NEW TYPES OF DATA AND DATA GATHERING TECHNIQUES FOR OTHER EVALUATIONS AND ASSESSMENTS OF INDUSTRIAL EDUCATION. THE APPENDIX INCLUDES (1) SAMPLE REPORT FORMS, (2) MAILING PROCEDURES, (3) DEFINITIONS, AND (4) A BIBLIOGRAPHY. A FLOW CHART OF THE MODEL IS INCLUDED. (EM)
