A Proposed System for Reporting Job Placement Follow-Through Data.
California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento. Bureau of Industrial Education.
A model was prepared for an information storage and retrieval system for reporting job placement follow-through data of persons trained in industrial education programs in the state public schools. Recommendations for application of the model are made on a statewide basis to serve the information needs of local, state, and federal industrial education agencies. New forms are recommended, using standardized codes and reporting procedures to provide data of job placements for required reports. The prescored card was selected for the questionnaire instrument with responses read directly by various electronic data processing techniques. The registration forms and the in-class follow-through forms are completed by all industrial students while in school. The out-of-class follow-through form is mailed to students after they leave school. Samples of the forms are included in this report. From the data collected many types of directories could be compiled, estimates could be made of when the students in any particular training program would be ready for employment, the students' major could be identified, individual dropouts could be identified early, and job placements could be accounted for, thereby evaluating certain industrial education programs and classes. The system may stand alone, operate in conjunction with other projects, or become a part of a larger information storage and retrieval system. (MM)
