Placement and Follow-Up Development Project. Vocational Education Region Four, Bowling Green, Kentucky. Final Report. Fiscal Year 1978.
Gary, Robert R.
A project was designed to develop and field test a job and career placement and follow-up system to serve as a model for state-wide implementation in vocational education programs. Third year objectives were (1) to expand the field test of the placement and follow-up system to six regional satellite test sites utilizing selected high schools and state supported vocational schools, (2) to plan, develop, and implement inservice activities to facilitate second-year field testing, (3) to evaluate the system and implementation methods and revise the system if necessary, and (4) to disseminate information about the system to the target population. All objectives were met to some extent, but only three regions implemented all phases of the system. The second-year field test provided three major results: production of information necessary for improving the system, aligning the information-producing instruments with reporting requirements of regulatory agencies, and gaining knowledge necessary for successful implementation of the system on a state-wide basis. It was concluded that a standardized placement and follow-up system will work in Kentucky. (Appendixes contain a revised manual, suggestions and recommendations, the local school plan form, and the employer survey results.) (CSS)
