Investment Planning in Vocational-Technical Education. A Pilot Study.
Wilson, James A.; Wihry, David F.
To improve long-range vocational education planning in Maine, this study examined and evaluated the feasibility of replacing the manpower approach to planning with an investment approach. A survey of machinists was conducted to develop an instrument for measuring program benefits as part of the investment approach to program evaluation and planning. The investment approach proved to be valuable both in long-range planning and as an "in-house" planning and evaluation procedure for on-going programs. (BH)
