Evaluation of Funded Projects for Development of Vocational Instructional Materials (Conclusion of Two Year Project). Final Report. Vocational-Technical Education Research Report, Volume 15, Number 12.
Pennsylvania State Univ., University Park. Div. of Occupational and Vocational Studies.
The purpose of the second-year activities of this project was to develop a comprehensive inventory of available vocational curriculum material throughout the State of Pennsylvania, to determine weaknesses in funding efforts, and to provide suggestions by which to establish an efficient and effective funding pattern. The objectives were accomplished through on-site visitations to selected school districts and dissemination of a survey instrument to directors of area vocational-technical schools. The results of the study include (1) the development and dissemination of a special report outlining the location, description, and nature of state-funded vocational curriculum development projects in Pennsylvania, 1971 to 1976 (which constitutes the second half of this document); (2) the identification of administrators' perceptions of state-funded vocational curriculum development projects; and (3) suggested guidelines for the development of instructional materials and funding patterns.
