Vocational Education Student Recruitment and Selection Practices in Indiana: Methodology and Findings. Final Report.
Pershing, James A.; Schwandt, Thomas A.
An Indiana project was designed to secure information necessary for defining and integrating components of an exemplary system for vocational education student recruitment and selection. The exploratory phase of the study involved an investigation of the definitions and processes of vocational education student recruitment and selection. It included literature reviews, an experience survey of vocational counselors and advisors in Indiana's secondary and postsecondary schools, and a survey and analysis of exemplary state practices. The descriptive phase of the study addressed prevailing practices and opinions concerning vocational education student recruitment and selection in Indiana. A mail survey instrument was administered to all of Indiana's area vocational technical schools and the thirteen regional campuses of the Indiana Vocational Technical College System. Data from the two phases, combined with information from literature reviews, were incorporated in the design and development of a schema for recruitment and selection of vocational education students. (This schema is presented in a companion document--see note.) (The mail survey instruments are appended.) (YLB)
