Development of a Model to Identify Vocational Education Needs Associated with Sex Role Stereotype within Special Target Groups. Final Report, May 15, 1978-September 30, 1979.
Florida State Univ., Tallahassee.
A project was conducted to develop and field test a practical model, usable by vocational educators, which would assess the extent to which sex bias and sex stereotyping exist in Florida's vocational education programs. The needs assessment model development phase of this study, accomplished through literature reviews, resulted in the development of a needs assessment model consisting of seven procedural steps. The model provides flexibility for the assessment of many varied vocational education needs. The field test was conducted through distribution of a survey instrument developed and validated using methods described in the model. A panel of experts was used to validate survey instrument goal statements identified as being areas in which sex bias and sex stereotyping might be found within vocational education. The instrument was designed specifically for vocational instructional personnel. The sample was drawn from area vocational-technical centers in Florida. The study has provided a flexible needs assessment model, a survey questionnaire designed for instructional personnel, and data tabulation and treatment methods usable in needs assessment.
