Quantitative Models for Occupational Teacher Utilization of Government-Published Information. Systems Engineering of Education VIII.
Silvern, Leonard C.; Brooks, Carl N.
The Federal Government creates and disseminates large accounts of technical information in various forms, i.e., handbooks, manuals, guides, texts, brochures and periodicals. Much of this information is of value to the vocational-technical secondary school teacher for updating lessons and giving information which keeps pace with occupational changes. This study was conducted to "Determine the Feasibility of Developing a Model Describing the Flow of Occupational and Economic Information into the Secondary Vocational-Technical School." The study went beyond this to produce quantitative models which describe and measure the utilization of government-published data. It was also expanded to include the comprehensive secondary school as well as the vocational-technical secondary school. (Not available in hard copy due to marginal legibility of original document).
