West Virginia Research Coordinating Unit for Vocational Education. Final Report.
Eberle, Fred W.; Smith, Rex M.
This report covers the period from May 1967 when the Research Coordinating Unit was officially established, through August 1969. Consultative activities concerned such matters as surveys to determine educational needs, an interagency adult basic education and skill training project, graduate teacher education, and health occupations education. Information activities included the development and implementation of an information retrieval and dissemination system and provision of training sessions on the Educational Resources Information Center. Seventeen research projects initiated during the period studied such matters as attitudes toward vocational education, summer extended employment for home economics teachers, characteristics of undereducated adults, inservice needs of vocational educators, facilities utilization, criteria for establishing area schools, and curriculum in consumer education. Planning and development activities included a long-range follow-up study of adult basic education students and institutes for adult education teachers, school administrators, and guidance counselors.
