Program Planning With Surveys in Occupational Education.
Henderson, John T.
Persons responsible for 2-year college occupational education should take positive steps to monitor data to measure and insure the development and successful operation of their programs. The purpose of this report is to provide better understanding of techniques involved in conducting surveys. Surveys can establish: student characteristics, manpower needs and projections, accountability and financing. The nature and scope of a survey and its ultimate use depends on the characteristics of the college conducting the survey and the community it serves. When planning a survey concerning occupational education, the needs, interests, and aspirations of those to be surveyed (employer and potential employee) should be considered. It is necessary to have initial and on-going surveys to evaluate accurately enrollment potential in the overall planning process for occupational education. To insure maximum use of survey feedback, the final report can be used as a basis for a seminar for faculty, administration, advisory committee members, and potential employers. (CA)
