Targeted Communications for Instituting Vocational Placement and Followup. Final Report and Appendixes A-C. Final Report.
McCracken, J. David
To provide substantive and methodological information concerning systematic vocational placement and followup to individuals responsible for educational program change, a project was conducted to develop three publications, each for different audiences: (1) school board members, (2) teacher educators, and (3) local school personnel. Information needs were identified during ad hoc meetings with representatives of the target groups. The information base for the project included: (1) literature identified through Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC) and other systems, (2) existing programs, and (3) the knowledge and experience of employees, school board members, and educators involved with the project. This final report describes the three targeted papers and the procedures used and makes recommendations to improve information dissemination. Sample questionnaires, a bibliography, and letters of permission from school districts are appended. The interim report containing the targeted papers is available as VT 015 018 in this issue.
