A Study of Current Instruments Which Measure Vocational Aptitudes and Interests of Students.
Alabama State Dept. of Education, Montgomery.
A compelling case has been made for improving the process of admissions, selection, and enrollment of students in vocational education programs. A key element in this improvement would be the adoption of a statewide assessment of vocational aptitudes and interests of ninth-grade students in Alabama as a measure of student career development and future program planning. A pilot assessment project affecting 2,600 students in 26 school systems of the state resulted in the identification of several appropriate interest surveys and aptitude measures feasible for statewide adoption. This report presents results of the Pilot Assessment Project of the Alabama Vocational Assessment Plan. It sets forth rationale and recommendations for the statewide assessment of vocational interests and aptitudes of ninth-grade students in Alabama schools. (Author/BW)
