State-of-the-Art in Vocational Rehabilitation: Report of a National Survey.
A study designed to obtain information regarding vocational evaluation programs, their staff, and the vocational evaluation services they provide is presented. A survey questionnaire was constructed and distributed on a national level to facilities identified as having at least one full-time vocational evaluator. Data was analyzed with respect to total population, and separately with respect to each of sub-populations on selected criterion variables of (1) primary emphasis of the facility, (2) type of facility, (3) geographic location, (4) type of handicapping conditions served, and (5) relationship of size of total staff to vocational evaluation staff. Overall findings indicate there are some common threads in patterns of vocational evaluation services provided by various types of facilities and programs identified. It is significant that there are differences in vocational evaluation services as a function of the emphasis, location and staffing patterns of these facilities. Data from this study are stored on IBM cards. (Author/NF)
