Review and Synthesis of Research in Trade and Industrial Education, Third Edition. Information Series No. 260.
Finch, Curtis R.
This third edition of a review and synthesis of research for trade and industrial (T&I) education concentrates primarily on studies reported from 1977 to 1982, including some significant work published since the second edition (1969). Relevant research was identified through searches of the Educational Resources Information Center, the National Technical Information Service, Defense Logistics Studies Information Exchange, and the Dissertation Abstracts International databases. A selective discussion of representative and exemplary studies in the field, the document covers these aspects of T&I: (1) philosophy and scope, (2) student characteristics and needs, (3) curriculum development (i.e., models and frameworks, content determination, affective and transferable skills, and competency-based education), (4) instruction and learning (i.e., systems development, technology, computer-assisted instruction, psychomotor skills, cognitive and affective learning, and youth groups), (5) teacher education, (6) administration, and (7) evaluation. Some relevant technical training research conducted by the U.S. armed forces is also included. A summary of the state of the art, areas for future research, and an extensive bibliography of the cited studies conclude the document. (SK)
