Follow-Up of 1965 Graduates of Wisconsin Schools of Vocational, Technical, and Adult Education.
Little, J. Kenneth; Whinfield, Richard W.
In order to evaluate the employment success of Wisconsin vocational graduates and to measure the extent to which this success is attributable to the vocational program, the Center for Studies in Vocational and Technical Education conducted a followup study of 1,855 graduates. When only 55 percent of the graduates responded, a short form of the questionnaire was distributed to nonrespondents raising the total response rate to 82 percent. Although significant differences between the two groups of respondents prevented generalization of many of the findings, employment and income of graduates were generally good, and for the most part, graduates found that training and work were related and their educational experience was useful in getting, holding, or changing jobs.
