The Pennsylvania Report: A New Agenda for Vocational-Technical Education. Final Report. Volume II: Data and Instrumentation.
Kurth, Paula K.; Grossman, Gary M.
This document accompanies a narrative volume that reports a study of Pennsylvania's vocational education system. It contains the instrumentation, participant lists, and all other supporting documentation. Chapter 1 is a data analysis of the open-ended interviews and second Delphi questionnaire that were used to determine the strengths and weaknesses of vocational-technical education in Pennsylvania. Results of interviews with 179 individuals are included. The analyses are organized by the five general areas of concern that emerged: governance and administration; leadership; research, planning, evaluation, and professional development; program development; and curriculum. Data are provided in 44 tables. Chapter 2 provides comprehensive policy Delphi results. Chapter 3 contains information from other states, including nine tables with comparative data; a report on Illinois' movement to regional systems under the Education for Employment Title; a report on outcome-based education in Minnesota; and a report on an evolutionary approach in Ohio. Chapter 4 provides the interview questions, vocational education study questionnaire, and second-round policy Delphi questionnaire. Chapters 5 through 9 contain the mailing list for the Delphi surveys; list of interviewees; policy Delphi meeting minutes and participant list; external review panel meeting minutes; and calendar of activities.
