Research Questions in Trade and Industrial Education.
Wichowski, Chester; Walker, Thomas
Results are reported of a nationwide survey to identify and categorize research questions related to the trade and industrial education area. (Respondents were members of the Policy and Planning Committee and the Research Committee of the American Vocational Association's Trade and Industrial Division, state and territorial supervisors of trade and industrial education, and department chairpersons and program leaders of trade and industrial education at colleges and universities.) A rank ordering of the research questions by frequency and percentage is provided in a table. Findings are then presented according to the 12 categories used to organize the research questions as they were provided by the respondents. Some questions are listed under more than one category. Research problems are then categorized under advisory committees, articulation, curriculum delivery/instruction, placement, followup, funding, guidance/counseling, special needs, program planning/access, sex equity, and teacher preparation/upgrading. The questionnaire is appended. (YLB)
