A Study to Compare Selected Factors in Federally Reimbursed and Nonreimbursed Business Education Courses (Office Procedures, Second-Year Shorthand, Second-Year Typewriting) in Secondary Schools in Eight Midwestern States.
Brown, Kenneth W.
The purpose of this study was to compare office procedures, second-year shorthand, and second-year typewriting courses which were reimbursed by provisions of the Vocational Education Act of 1963 and the Vocational Education Amendments of 1968, with nonreimbursed courses. Program components selected for the comparison were: (1) student enrollment, (2) number of sections taught, (3) length of time by minutes and courses, (4) grading factors, (5) occupational competencies taught, (6) educational equipment, and (7) teacher qualifications. Data for the study were collected by questionnaire survey of 625 teachers in the 8-state North Central Business Education region of the National Business Education Association. Findings of the study include: (1) Federally reimbursed courses in office procedures differed significantly in the course data section of the questionnaire, and (2) The two types of shorthand and typewriting courses did not differ significantly in terms of the above program components.
