Commuter Job Corps. Final Report.
Utah Research Coordinating Unit for Vocational and Technical Education, Salt Lake City.
To evaluate the effectiveness of a commuter job corps program, evaluation data were obtained from participants, instructors, administrators, and a control group. Designed specifically for high school dropouts and run in conjunction with the local school districts, this program was evaluated in terms of (1) student retention, (2) return-to-school rate, (3) the employment rate, and (4) grades. Analysis of the data revealed that the commuter job corps program resulted in a retention rate of 50 percent and a summer employment rate of 80 percent. Intuitively, it was concluded that this program should be continued, but it was further noted that better methods of gathering data are needed. (JS)
