The Third Annual Composite Evaluation Report for Secondary Vocational Education in Wisconsin, 1979-80.
Dale, Dorothy; Klitzke, Elizabeth
Prepared to aid decision makers at local, state, and national levels in planning and assessing vocational education in Wisconsin, this composite report presents data from the first phase of the evaluation system of secondary vocational education--the Self Evaluation Phase. Chapter 1 overviews the evaluation activities and the remainder of this report. Chapter 2 includes only selected data from each of six self-evaluation activities conducted by local education agencies: followup of graduates, employer followup, student assessment, vocational staff assessment, advisory committee assessment, and assessment of staff dealing with special needs students in vocational programs. Chapter 3 has isolated data about each vocational discipline from the mass of composite data. Data are presented about four outcome measures of 1- and 3-year graduates--job relatedness, training satisfaction, postsecondary training, and hourly wage--and three outcome measures of in-school membership in vocational student organizations--training satisfaction, occupational awareness, and post-high school plans. Outcome measures are shown first in chart form, followed by a brief narrative highlighting selected findings. Chaper 4 draws conclusions about five selected outcome measures of a secondary vocational program: job relatedness, training satisfaction, postsecondary training, wages, and in-school vocational student organizations.
