A Guide for Planning Drafting and Design Technology Programs. Section III, Data Collection and Analysis.
This document, the second of three related reports, constitutes the data collection and analysis section of the study designed to provide information for preparing a planning guide for drafting and design technology programs. The curriculum survey instrument mailed to 26 schools, contained questions regarding: (1) length of semesters, (2) enrollment data, (3) disposition of program graduates, (4) general curriculum structure, (5) selection of specialty courses, and (6) course content. The facilities survey instrument was returned from 25 program directors and 38 instructors. This was followed with a visitation to each school by the researcher. Items that were considered include: (1) location of drafting rooms, (2) flexibility and width of aisles, (3) air conditioning and ventilation, (4) electrical outlets, (5) ceiling heights, (6) illumination, (7) floor areas, (8) compressed air, (9) drafting machines, (10) storage facilities, (11) audiovisual aids, and (12) office facilities and equipment. The industrial survey instrument was returned from 375 industrial concerns. The instrument consisted of a battery of information forms designed for rating by area specialists. The size of the concern and job training needs were considered. The developmental procedure and planning guide and the appendixes are available as VT 014 407 and VT 014 408 respectively. (GEB)
