Determining Approval Standards for Postsecondary Vocational Technical Programs in Nebraska.
Cromer, Chalmers A.
This study formulated and validated standards which could be used to evaluate and approve Nebraska's postsecondary vocational and technical schools. A review of the literature was conducted to provide an historical background and to analyze the present status of accreditation and approval of programs. Next a questionnaire was developed and a nationwide sampling was made of 39 public and 30 private schools and all State divisions of vocational education. These data were tabulated, summarized, and presented to a 14-member jury composed of vocational educators in the State. At least 50 percent of the jury had to approve an item before it became a standard. The areas in which the jury made recommendations were administrative and operational policy, educational services, instructional staff and program, and school facilities. This Ed.D. dissertation was submitted to The University of Nebraska. (BC)
