The Systems Approach to Assessment and Evaluation of Post Secondary Vocational Education Programs. Employability Inventory: Findings and Analyses.
Hartz, John; And Others
This report consists of a background and discussion of the methods used to design the employability inventory as well as results obtained from field testing it with graduates from and current students at two postsecondary vocational technical institutions in Wisconsin. Results obtained are reported in number and percentage distribution tables along with results of statistical procedures used in analyzing reports. Analyses presented consist of comparisons between various groupings of the field test subjects. Graduate subjects are grouped and compared according to employment status, program area completed, rural or urban locale, sex, and experience (age). Comparisons are also made between the responses of current students and those of successfully employed graduates from the same general programs. The report concludes with a discussion of the findings, suggestions for further research, and possible implications for practitioners. Appendixes contain samples of the employability inventory and correspondence concerning the inventory. (CSS)
