Utah Project "Follow-Up." Interim Report.
Cox, John A.
Procedures and machinery were developed for a statewide, 5-year follow-up of high school and post-secondary vocational students for quality and cost effectiveness analysis purposes. The system calls for specific information about the student to be gathered while he is in school by means of a Student Exit Form. Information is accumulated on magnetic computer tape, and after the student leaves school (graduates or drops out), he is sent a mail-out questionnaire designed to gather information about what the student does after leaving school. Students receive a questionnaire once each year for 5 years after leaving school. Exit forms were utilized for the first time during the 1967-68 school year and mail-out questionnaires were sent to 1968 graduates and to dropouts in September 1968. Although problems arose in procedures, data accumulation, and reports, the basic system has been developed, is considered functional, and is recommended for continuation.
