A Study of Manpower Development and Training Act Programs in New York State.
Hamburger, Martin; LoCascio, Ralph
A study of the process and product of Manpower Development and Training Act (MDTA) programs was conducted from May 1968 to June 1969. Data were collected by surveying the multi-centers, extensive staff reviews, mail followup, a review of related literature, and consultations. Results of the study include: (1) a survey of the feasibility and problems of evaluating a state-wide MDTA program, (2) a field study of the multi-centers, their operations, programs, staff and trainees, (3) an analysis of the sources of data, their accessibility and their usefulness, and (4) recommendations concerning needs and priorities for MDTA research and evaluation. A mail followup story of former trainees will be included in a separate report. While this study is limited to one program in one state, it contains implications for MDTA research methodology and programs in general. (CH)
