Priorities for Vocational-Technical Education Research in North Carolina.
Puder, William H.
This survey was conducted to establish research priorities in the field of technical and vocational education in North Carolina. Contacted by a mail questionnaire were 812 randomly selected community college administrators, private vocational school operators, State Department of Education personnel, and classroom teachers. In the questionnaire, respondents were asked to assign one of four priority rankings (not knowledgeable in this area, no priority, priority, or high priority) to each of 47 potential research items categorized into six general areas: curriculum, guidance, inservice and teacher education, evaluation, occupational education and manpower, and dissemination of occupational information. Additional priority rankings were made by respondents' job categories; by educational attainments; and by educational discipline. A priority ranking of suggested topics for research in vocational and technical education is appended to the study. (author/ly)
